Adrian Dauphinee


I'm a Canadian biochemist interested in catabolic processes, specifically autophagy ("self-eating") and programmed cell death (PCD). After completing my PhD studies at Dalhousie University (Canada) under the supervision of Dr. Arunika Gunawardena, I started a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Postdoctoral Fellowship in Sweden. My current research has focused on developing new tools and strategies to manipulate and further unravel this critical biochemical pathway. I am dedicated to understand how autophagy can be leveraged for the improvement of agriculture and human health. In addition to my research, I am passionate about volunteer work with a focus on science communication and public outreach. I am currently supported by a Formas mobility grant, which will be used to initiate a new collaborative project with Dr. Georgia Drakakaki (University of Californa, Davis).
