Higher Degree by Research Candidate

School of Agriculture, Food and Wine

Faculty of Sciences, Engineering and Technology

Saber Sohrabi (Sab) is a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Adelaide. He received his undergraduate degree from Shiraz University, Iran, before pursuing a Master's in Biotechnology and Molecular Genetics in Horticultural Crops at the University of Tehran, Iran. During his master's, he conducted research on the expression of transcription factor genes associated with salt tolerance in grapevines. Following his master's, Sab secured a scholarship from the University of Adelaide to pursue his Ph.D. in Plant Sciences. Currently, his research focuses on the cannabinoid biosynthesis pathway in cannabis. His objective is to gain a deeper understanding of this pathway and employ molecular techniques, such as CRISPR, to manipulate it. The ultimate aim is to generate cannabis lines with desirable cannabinoid profiles.
