If you have a question about this talk, please contact Matthew Johnston.

Currently Professor of Plant Development and head of the Sainsbury’s laboratory, Professor Leyser researches the role of plant hormones in development. Amongst the life-sciences community, she is perhaps most well-known for her identification of the auxin receptor and her world-leading role in promoting Arabidopsis to be the prominent model organism it is now. Her work has resulted in an impressive number of awards and honours to her name.

Away from her research, she is a member of the Nuffield Council on Bioethics and was a member of the Council’s Working Party on Biofuels. She also often represents successful women in science, producing with the Royal Society “Mothers in Science – 64 ways to have it all”
