Naomi Forrester Naomi was a Wellcome Trust Summer Student. She studied the circadian regulation of the Cab2 promoter in guard cells.

 

Collaborations

Prof. Dale Sanders University of York) and Dr Julie Gray (University of Sheffield) collaborate with the signal transduction lab to investigate the role of cADPR in circadian behaviour.

We collaborate with Dr Jim Haseloff (University of Cambridge) and Prof. Scott Poethig (University of Pennsylvania) to identify guard cell genes and enhancer elements.

Prof. Carl Johnson (Vanderbilt University) also investigates circadian calcium signalling. We are collaborating with his group to investigate cell-specific circadian behaviour.
