Dr MATTHEW AUDLEY
Plant Biologist; Knowledge Transfer Partnership Associate
Plant Sciences for the Bioeconomy
Matthew is interested in the regulation of reproductive development in wheat and in the impact of abiotic stress on wheat fertility. His specific area of expertise is in the genetic and hormonal signalling pathways that control pollen development and their responses to high-temperature stress. In association with an industrial partner, he is currently transferring this knowledge into a commercial product that is aimed at protecting wheat from high temperature stress.
