Professor Wenbo Ma joined The Sainsbury Laboratory in 2020 as a Senior Group Leader.

Plant diseases have a devastating impact on agriculture, so understanding how pathogens become virulent and how plants develop immunity is critical for our future sustainability.
We asked Wenbo why she joined TSL and what research she will do with her team.
