Shannon Greer

About me...

My name is Shannon Greer (née Easterlow) and I am a 4th year Plant and Environmental Sciences PhD student at the University of Warwick, The School of Life Sciences, Wellesbourne Campus.

I undertook my BSc. in Biological Sciences at The University of Warwick in 2011 where I tailored my degree towards virology in my 2nd year and furthered my interests in plant biology through an Undergraduate Research Support Scheme (URSS). After graduating in the summer of 2014, I went on to work as a Laboratory Technician in Dr. Jose Gutierrez-Marcos group at the Univeristy's Gibbet Hill Campus. After a year gaining vital research experience as a technician I moved on to begin a 4-year PhD project in at the University.

About my research...

I have been extremely fortunate to receive funding to undertake a 4-year PhD (2015-2019) that combines both of my interests in virology and plant biology:

Project title: 'Broadening and improving the Turnip yellows virus resistance base in oilseed rape (BITYR)'

I am a BBSRC iCASE student at the University of Warwick. To learn more about my research project please see My Research.
