This fellowship aims to advance our mechanistic understanding of plant vascular development in response to mechanical stimulus. The project is a close cooperation between the group of Hannele Tuominen at Department of Plant Physiology (UPSC) and Javier Agusti, Instituto de Biología Molecular y Celular de Plantas, Universitat Politècnica de Valencia, Spain. The fellowship is hosted in Hannele Tuominens research group.
