Wolfgang Busch是美国加州索尔克生物学研究所的副教授。Busch博士本科就读于德国图宾根大学生物学专业,2008年获得德国马克斯·普朗克研究所发育生物学博士学位,2009-2011年在美国杜克大学博士后研究。2011-2016年担任奥地利孟德尔分子植物研究所研究组组长;2017年至今担任索尔克生物学研究所植物分子和细胞生物学实验室研究组组长。Busch博士建立了植物根系统遗传学研究方法,鉴定了多个控制根生长发育的重要因子,先后在Nature、Science、Nature Genetics、Development Cell、PNAS、The Plant Cell等杂志上发表论文50余篇。由于杰出的工作,Busch博士先后获得了多项国际奖励,2014年荣获基因组网络青年研究者奖,2015年荣获实验生物学会会长奖章。

Wolfgang Busch is Associate Professor at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, La Jolla, California, USA. Dr. Busch did his undergraduate studies in Biology at the University of Tübingen, Germany and conducted additional research during this time at UC San Diego. He received his PhD at the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology in Tübingen in 2008. After his postdoctoral training at Duke University, he joined the Gregor Mendel Institute of Molecular Plant Biology in Vienna in 2011 as a group leader. During this time, he established his research program in root systems genetics and identified multiple genes and their variants that control root growth. In 2017, he was appointed Associate Professor in the Plant Molecular and Cellular Biology Laboratory of the Salk Institute of Biological Studies in La Jolla, USA. Dr. Busch has published more than 50 scientific papers, many of them in world-leading top scientific journals. For his work, Dr. Busch received multiple international awards, including the Genome Web Young Investigator Award 2014 and the SEB president’s medal 2015.
