Nominator's project description

Professor Julian Schroeder is well-known for pioneering ed the identification and characterization of ion channels in higher plants. He has made groundbreaking contributions on to CO2 sensing and signaling [as well as on to abiotic stress signaling in plants]. His oeuvre has broad implications in for understanding plant responses to elevated atmospheric CO2, droughtdrought, and salinity stress. In Germany, he continues his exciting research on the molecular mechanisms of water use of plants for generating crops of the future.
