Miss Jenna Loiseau

PhD Student
Silke Robatzek Group

When I started to study science at university I learnt about the ability of plants to defend themselves and how they develop mechanisms to overcome pathogen attack. I found this topic fascinating, therefore I did an internship at the INRA in Dijon, France, were I learnt more about this subject and I started to study plasma membrane dynamics and vesicle trafficking during plant pathogen interactions. I was particularly interested in endocytosis.

I joined the Robatzek group to do my PhD on FLS2 endocytosis. How FLS2 translocates into endosomes after flg22 perception remains unclear. I am interested in the regulation of FLS2 endocytosis and I investigate this by using biochemistry and microscopy techniques.
