2 June 2015  We're looking for a new Research Technician to join the lab to work on sugar signalling. Applications close on 21 June. Full details here.


29 April 2015 Our review on nutrient homeostasis and the clock was published today in Frontiers in Plant Science.


23 March 2015 Mike is in Saõ Paolo, Brazil this week to present at a FAPESP-British Council Workshop on 'Environmental and metabolic control of plant growth and development.'


30 September 2014 Welcome to Ángela and Waheed, who started today in the lab. BBSRC-funded project now underway!


26 June 2014 Research Technician position is now open for applications, closing on 9 July. The post is available for up to 3 years, working on a BBSRC-funded project on sugar signalling in Arabidopsis. Full details here.


24 June 2014 Post-doctoral Research Associate position available in the lab now! This is a BBSRC-funded project, available for up to 3 years, to work on sugar signalling in Arabidopsis. Closing date for applications is 23 July, with a start-date in September. Full details here.


6 June 2014 We have been awarded a 3-year BBSRC grant to investigate sugar signalling in Arabidopsis. This means there will soon be an opportunity for a Postdoc and a Research Technician to join the lab. Watch this space for more details on how to apply.


23 April 2014 Mike wrote a blog for GARNet's Celebrating Basic Plant Science series, A sweet surprise: Revealing new roles for sugars in plants

Haydon lab

Molecular plant physiology

Based in the School of BioSciences at The University of Melbourne (and also in the Department of Biology at the University of York) we use genetics, chemical genetics, molecular biology and biochemistry to understand signalling pathways underpinning adaptive mechanisms in plants in response to changes in environment.
