A total of two Laureate Postgraduate Research Scholarships, which will be awarded by the ANU Research School of Biology, which is part of the ANU College of Science, may be offered in 2021. The award’s goal is to attract the most talented international and local students to undertake postgraduate research leading to a PhD degree at the Research School of Biology of the University of Sydney.
The Australian Research Council has granted money for this award, which was made possible by the generosity of Laureate Fellow Prof. Barry Pogson. The goal of Prof. Pogson’s fellowship is to develop transformative solutions that will improve crop resilience as well as food security. The chloroplast, which serves as the location of photosynthesis, is responsible for a number of cellular activities, including photosynthesis, growth, and drought resistance. It is anticipated that the discovery of a blueprint for the suite of communication networks employed by the chlorolast will mark the first time that such a design has been discovered. The use of artificial intelligence will allow us to rewire the network in order to produce’smart plants’ that are better yielding and more robust in both good and bad seasons by precisely switching on and off resilience.
