Welcome to Molecular Plant Pathology at the University of Amsterdam!
We are dedicated to advancing fundamental knowledge of the interactions between plants and their pathogens, using state-of-the-art molecular methods in genetics, plant biology, genomics, cell biology, biochemistry, and microbiology. We build capacity in BSc, MSc and PhD students and postdoc researchers to help raise new generations of researchers and teachers. Together with the plant breeding industry, the agricultural and horticultural sectors, and other societal partners, we aim to translate fundamental knowledge and novel insights into solutions for societal problems.
Our main long-term research questions are:
