Event Details

Join Markham Public Library and York University as we bring to Markham a taste of the university experience. Each month YorkU faculty will bring their amazing research and provide an opportunity for our community to learn something new.

 

Talk Description:

Humans have taken advantage of plants’ natural defences to fend off pathogens for thousands of years. Professor Kathi Hudak will discuss an antiviral protein that protects plants and inhibits the replication of human retroviruses such as HIV.


 

Professor Hudak received her PhD from the University of Waterloo and completed a Post-Doctoral Fellowship at the Biotechnology Center for Agriculture and the Environment at Rutgers University, before joining the Biology Department at York University. Prof Hudak currently teaches biotechnology and guides a dynamic research group of graduate and undergraduate students discovering how plants protect themselves from pathogens.
