Jun Jiang

Postdoctoral Fellow

I completed my PhD in Virology and Immunology at University of Qu├ębec, Canada. My PhD study focused on the biogenesis of positive-strand RNA virus-induced replication vesicle, in the case of Turnip mosaic virus. To broaden my interest in host-pathogen interaction, I joined the lab since July 2017. My current interest is to understand the plant-pathogen-vector tripartite interaction, and further explore its application in agriculture.

Postdoctoral Fellow

“I graduated in plant-microbe interactions in 2013 at the University of Montpellier in my home country France. My PhD project was focused on the transmission mechanism of the Cauliflower mosaic virus by the aphid vector. After my PhD I had a chance to come to the US at the University of Florida for a postdoc where I continued to study plant-virus interactions. I currently joined the Casteel group at the University of Davis where my project matches well with my interest in plant virus transmission. ”
