Prof. Shelley Lumba has been awarded a New Frontiers in Research Fund grant

We’re very happy to announce that Prof. Shelley Lumba is one of the recipients of the inaugural Exploration Grant from the New Frontiers in Research Fund (NFRF), a new federal fund which is aimed at providing opportunities for early career researchers to conduct high-risk, high-reward interdisciplinary research.

Professor Lumba, along with her collaborators Prof. Lewis Kay (University of Toronto) and Prof. Yuichiro Tsuchiya (Nagoya University), will be investigating the “molecular dynamics of strigolactone receptors in parasitic witchweeds.”

Congratulations Shelley and her team, on this terrific achievement!
