Faculty Profile Video: Dr. Marco Todesco

As part of a series of videos highlighting the research of new faculty members, the UBC Faculty of Science interviewed Dr. Marco Todesco, who is appointed with the Michael Smith Laboratories, the Department of Botany, and the UBC Okanagan Department of Biology.

Dr. Marco Todesco’s research focuses on understanding how plants adapt to different and changing environments. He aims to link ecological processes (the traits that allow a plant to survive in a certain environment) to genetic variation (the genes and molecular mechanisms that are important for those adaptations) using an ever-expanding mix of molecular and developmental biology, genetics, genomics, physiology, and field studies.

You can see the original post from the Faculty of Science, along with other new faculty profile videos, on their website.
