Professor Anja Geitmann will review how the carrier of sperm cells, the pollen tube, reaches its targeted egg cell during fertilization in flowering plants; Professor Daniel Philippe Matton will review the complex signals that guide the pollen tube in its journey toward the plant ovule to effect fertilization and produce seed and fruit; Professor Jean Rivoal will discuss how a novel antioxidant enzyme in plants is regulated by biotic and environmental stress.

Research associate Sonia Dorion will present on novel mechanisms involved in the control of carbohydrate metabolism in roots; PhD student Evgenia Auslender will discuss how plant cells cope with iron deficiency; PhD students Rabah Zerzour and Firas Bou Daher will present a talks on the mechanisms by which pollen tubes perceive mechanical signals and respond.
