Welcome to Martina Legris !

Martina got her bachelor in Biology, Master and PhD degrees from the University of Buenos Aires in Argentina, working at Fundaci├│n 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.
