Theo Murphy international scientific meeting organised by Professor Roy Quinlan and Professor Takekazu Kunieda.
Anhydrobiosis was first described by Van Leeuwenhoek in 1702. Both plants and animals have anhydrobiotic responses and understanding the mechanisms that support such an extreme stress response will prove invaluable for future food security and for new therapeutics to treat for example proteinopathy-based diseases. Interdisciplinary scientists at the plant-animal interface will scope the application of anhydrobiotic mechanisms in future technologies.
The schedule of talks and speaker biographies is available below. Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting date. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place.
