Glenn R Hicks (University of California Riverside, USA and Uppsala Bio Center, Sweden)
Glenn is a Professional Researcher at the UCR and is interested in the endomembrane system. He developed plant based large-scale screening approaches to identify novel regulators of plant growth and development. His group has identified novel small synthetic molecules that inhibit pollen tube growth in vitro as a drug screening approach to identify small molecules that affect trafficking of PIN auxin transporters and other plasma membrane proteins resulting in defects in vesicle trafficking and endomembrane function. Recent approaches have yielded novel targets and biological insights.
