Dr. Martijn Rep has been appointed professor of Phytopathology at the University of Amsterdam’s (UvA) Faculty of Science. You are kindly invited to attend his inaugural lecture entitled ‘Adaptation, Innovation and Progress’.
As professor, Martijn Rep will focus on the dynamics of interactions between plants and microorganisms. The fundamental scientific focus is on the evolution of these interactions, which have given shape to both the genomic composition of plant-pathogenic microorganisms and plant immune systems. In addition, he will look to use his obtained insights to contribute, together with commercial partners and organisations, to a more efficient and environmentally friendly management of plant diseases.
