Biography

Christian Hardtke is the Director of the Department of Plant Molecular Biology at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland. He is particularly interested in the remarkable plasticity of plants in their development and their adaptation to variable environments. His research revolves around the molecular genetic control of plant development, with a focus on genes that modify quantitative aspects of plant growth and morphology. He is particularly interested in the hormonal control of root system architecture and the organization of the plant vascular system. His studies also exploit natural genetic variation, adding an occasional evolutionary ecology twist to his work
