Crop science

PhD student working in a greenhouse

Investigate how improvements to pharmaceutical treatments can change healthcare

Crop plant research is based around the study of plants that are harvested as food or for economic purpose, e.g. trees for wood and paper production and materials such as cotton. Plant-soil interactions for enhanced crop productivity, nutrient uptake, toxicity and detoxification. Researchers will focus on studies such as tolerance to environmental stress and climate change, genetic modification for crop breeding, improved nutrient uptake and nutritional composition, study of crop diseases, and the use of plants to produce biopharmaceuticals.
