Miss Alicia Abarca Cifuentes

Visiting MSc Student
Cyril Zipfel Group

I am fascinated by the ongoing evolutionary battle between plants and pathogens. I discovered the world of phytopathology at Jan van Kan’s group at Wageningen University and Research where I did my MSc thesis about plant cell-death balance and Botrytis cinerea effectors.

I joined Cyril Zipfel group in October to work in the identification of novel surface immune receptors in Solanaceae plants.
