Anne-Lise Routier and Daniel Kierzkowski, recipients of the New Frontiers in Science Fund

Professors Anne-Lise Routier and Daniel Kierzkowski are the new recipients of the New Frontiers in Science Fund. This highly competitive grant funds innovative interdisciplinary research across Canada. The two IRBV professors want to elucidate the cellular mechanisms controlling the growth of floral organs by combining biology, physics and engineering. They propose to study the influence of temperature on the development of flowers in order to make them more resilient to climate change.
