Mike Ogden featured in ‘Humans of BioSciences’

MelPoPP candidate Mike Ogden has been featured in the University of Melbourne School of BioSciences’ Humans of BioSciences campaign.

Mike’s research in plant molecular biology explores approaches to understanding how nitrogen regulates plant cell wall synthesis and root growth. He is interested in how plants respond to stressful growth conditions, such as nutrient deficiency or pest attack and “aims to identify new genes and molecular pathways responsible for these damage responses, which cause drastic changes in plant root growth.”

Mike talks about his research and what it has been like to navigate an international joint-PhD during a pandemic.
