Time:June 11 (Monday), 2018 10:00-12:00

Venue:International Exchange Center 208

Introduction of Speaker:

Sheng LUAN, Ph.D., Professor. Dr. Luan received his Ph.D in Cell and Developmental Biology, followed by postdoctoral training in Chemistry Department, both at Harvard University. He joined the faculty of UC Berkeley in the Department of Plant and Microbial Biology in 1994 and became a full professor in 2004.

Dr. Luan’s research is focused on how plants perceive and respond to extracellular signals through modifying their developmental and physiological programs. Studies in Luan Lab have identified a new molecular network for calcium signal transduction in plants. He has published more than 150 research and review articles in premier journals including Annual Review of Plant Biology, Trends in Plant Sciences, Current Opinion in Plant Biology, Nature, Nature Genetics, Nature Cell Biology, Nature Communications, PNAS, Plant Cell, PLoS Biology and others. Prof. Luan received numerous awards including Charles Albert Shull Award, Fellow of AAAS, Alexander von Humboldt Prize.

Welcome teachers and students to participate!

Dr. Luan is the founding Editor-in-Chief of Molecular Plant, a leading plant biology journal published by Cell Press.
