Pascal Genschik holds a PhD and a Habilitation from the University of Strasbourg, France. Since 1997, he has been a group leader at the Institute of Molecular Plant Biology in Strasbourg. He studies various aspects of plant growth and development. His group has identified key components of the ethylene, abscisic acid, and gibberellin signaling pathways in the model plant Arabidposis. Recent work focuses on the cell cycle, epigenetic regulation, and autophagy. A major 5-year goal of his group is to unravel the post-translation regulation of core components of the machinery for RNA-mediated silencing.
