Main Focus

Alan obtained his Master’s degree in Biosciences at the University of Münster in 2016. During his studies, he mainly focused on protein biochemistry, biophysics and theoretical biology within a variety of plant-related topics. The main objective of his PhD is the role of fungal β-glucans as microbe-associated molecular patterns for the plant innate immunity. Furthermore, he is interested in the involvement of glucans in biotrophic interaction between plants and fungi (here: the root endophyte Serendipita indica as a model).
