SmartBIO seminar: Control over photosynthetic energy transfer by rearrangements of its basic building blocks

Prof. Nir Keren, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel

Host: Yagut Allahverdiyeva (allahve@utu.fi)

Professor Nir Keren works at the Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences in Hebrew University (Jerusalem, Israel). His research is focused on metal transport, accumulation and homeostasis in photosynthetic organisms. In addition, he studies dynamics of the photosynthetic apparatus when photosynthetic organisms adapt to the changing environment.
