Background

Professor Niyogi is a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator, a professor in the Department of Plant and Microbial Biology at the University of California, Berkeley, and a faculty scientist in the Molecular Biophysics and Integrated Bioimaging Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. He received his PhD in biology from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1993 and has since won a number of awards including the Howard Hughes Award, the Charles Albert Schull Award from the American Society of Plant Biologists, and the Melvin Calvin Award from the International Society of Photosynthesis Research . The Niyogi Lab studies photosynthetic energy conversion and its regulation in algae and plants. The lab uses a wide array of experimental organisms (cyanobacteria, eukaryotic algae, and plants) and interdisciplinary approaches to investigate fundamental questions about the assembly, regulation, and dynamics of photosynthesis.
