Dr. Georgianna Doffek
Georgianna Doffek’s research focuses on the development of rainfast, thermostable and eco-friendly insecticidal fusion proteins. Georgianna’s research utilizes anchor peptides to facilitate the adherence of insecticides to plants, thereby minimizing wash off. Through protein engineering, the thermal stability of these rainfast insecticides will be further enhanced, and in so doing, ease the complexity of insecticide application in the field. With the development of rainfast and thermostable eco-friendly insecticidal fusion proteins, the project endeavours to reduce the use of synthetic pesticides and promote sustainable agriculture.
