Research

Professor Iain Donnison leads the Agricultural & Environmental Sciences Theme in IBERS. He is a plant and environmental scientist with expertise in crop physiology, genetics and environmental impact of temperate and tropical grasses. His recent work focuses on environmental stress, and strategies for adaptation to, and mitigation of, climate change.

Professor Donnison is also committed to the translation of science and working with industry within the bioeconomy to achieve wider impact. For example, the BEACON Biorefining Centre which he leads was recognised as one of Europe's most innovative projects winning the European Commission’s RegioStars Award for Sustainable Growth.
