Dr MALCOLM HAWKESFORD
Head of Plant Sciences; Designing Future Wheat (ISP) Leader
Malcolm is Head of Plant Sciences and leads the Institute Strategic Programme, Designing Future Wheat. He has published widely on the biochemistry and molecular biology of plant nutrition and is internationally recognised for contributions in the field of plant nutrition, particularly with regard to nitrogen and sulphur. He also leads the field phenotyping project at Rothamsted Research.
