Paul R. Ebert
Paul R. Ebert received the M.S. degree from the University of Washington in 1984 in microbiology and immunology, investigating virulence factors that allowed Agrobacterium tumefaciens to naturally genetically transform plant cells. He received the Ph.D. degree from Washington State University in 1987, during which he studied gene regulation in transgenic plant tissue. He joined University of Melbourne, where he contributed to the discovery of a fertilization self-incompatibility factor in plants. He shifted his focus to insect neurobiology at Yale University, where he served as a Life Sciences Research Foundation Fellow and continued in insect neurobiology as an Adjunct Academic at the University of California at Davis. He joined the University of Queensland in 1995, where he has published several works on plant pathology. His area of specialization is model organism genetics and genomics to understand the biochemistry and physiology of fumigant toxicity and mechanisms of resistance.
