Dr Caitlin Byrt

Postdoctoral Fellow
Faculty of Sciences

My expertise is in the area of plant biology, particularly as it relates to membrane transport and cell wall biology. The main focus of my research is identifying traits that influence cereal crop productivity. For example, I am part of a team that identified a gene in a wild wheat which contributes to salinity tolerance. Using this information we were able to improve the salinity tolerance of modern durum wheat resulting in increased grain yields on saline soil.

Associate Professor Lisa Butler
Australian Research Council Future Fellow.

Professor Rachel Burton

Node Leader - ARC CoE in Plant Cell Walls
Faculty of Sciences

My expertise is in the areas of plant molecular biology and plant functional genomics, particularly as it relates to cell wall biosynthesis, re-modeling and degradation and the impact these biological processes have on end use quality of cereals and biomass. Research in this area is mainly focused on barley as we have access to an excellent genetic transformation system and extensive genetic resources but we are now developing resources in other cereals and Plantago species.

Professor Nicholas Burns

Professor
Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences

Professor Nicholas Burns.

My research has as a common theme the assessment of subtle changes in cognitive function that arise as a result of, for example, environmental neurotoxins, nootropic supplements, other drugs, or both normal and pathological ageing. More recently, we have begun to investigate the genetics of individual differences in learning; as well as examining relationships between learning and intelligence.
