BSPP Plant Health Club ‘Preparing for PPATH2024’

A series of Plant Health Club sessions – helping plant pathologists get the most out of the annual BSPP meeting and other conferences.

‘Networking at Conferences’

This is session 3 in the ‘Preparing for PPATH2024’ series.

Presented by,

Rob Jackson, University of Birmingham and Gail Preston, University of Oxford.


Prof. Gail Preston

Prof. Gail Preston is a Lecturer in Plant-Microbe Interactions, Director of the BBSRC-funded Oxford Interdisciplinary Bioscience Doctoral Training Partnership at the University of Oxford and Deputy Director of the University of Oxford’s Doctoral Training Centre. https://preston.web.ox.ac.uk/

She developed a fascination for plant pathology while studying Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge. She studied for her doctorate under the inspiring mentorship of Prof. Alan Collmer at Cornell University, where she began to ask questions about the biology of plant pathogens that still inform her research today. How do environmental factors regulate pathogenicity and virulence mechanisms? How do pathogens manipulate the microenvironment inside host tissues? How does the environment inside and outside plants affect disease development?
