Photosynthesis shaped much of the world as we know it, driving our climate, nutrition and energy resources.


Despite over a century of photosynthesis research, we are currently just starting to scratch the surface of its vast potential to secure future global demand for feed and energy, with current efforts targeting light harvesting, light energy conversion, carbon uptake and conversion, and photosynthate investment for improvement.


These aspects and others are studied in our school at various levels including physiology, molecular and systems biology of photosynthetic cells.
