Welcome to Martina Legris !

Martina got her bachelor in Biology, Master and PhD degrees from the University of Buenos Aires in Argentina, working at Fundación Instituto Leloir. During her PhD she studied how Arabidopsis plants perceive light and temperature signals and how this affects morphogenesis, focusing on Phytochrome B action. Now, during her postdoc in Prof. Fankhauser´s lab she will study how environmental signals affect leaf development in Arabidopsis, particularly how phototropins control leaf flattening.
