Stronger plants against stress
The researcher Julien Lang joined the Institute of Plant Sciences, Paris-Saclay in Gif-sur-Yvette in 2015. He studies ways to improve plant resistance to stress and attacks.

Julien Lang takes a particular interest in plant-bacteria interaction and the processes used by living organisms to adapt to environmental constraints. He is currently studying MAPK plant proteins (Mitogen Activated Protein Kinase). MAPKs play an important role in transmitting and incorporating stress signals from various sources: germs or insects, drought or soil salinity.
