Congratulations to Dr Idan Efroni

Idan Efroni

Congratulations to  Dr Idan Efroni on being chosen as an  HHMI International Research Scholar.

Idan is unraveling the mystery of plants’ impressive regenerative abilities.  He uses tomatoes to study how plants generate new stem cells and meristems  to replace damaged or missing roots. Insight into this process might  reveal clues about tissue regeneration in other organisms, and help  scientists boost plant production for agriculture.
