Postdoctoral Scientist

Julie Lintz

staff profile


I am interested in plant-pathogen interactions and disease resistance bioengineering. My research is focussed on bioengineering plants for enhanced disease resistance, targeting molecular interactions between host plants and pathogens. More precisely, in my current project at TSL, I am involved in the design of NLR immune receptors and engineering tools to detect pathogen effectors and fortify the plant defense system.
