Guillaume Tcherkez

Guillaume is an ARC Future Fellow working on plant metabolic fluxes and interactions between metabolic pathways, such as the influence of photorespiration on day respiration. His work also explores isotope effects (isotopes at natural abundance) not only in plant biology (for example, in Rubisco catalysis) but also in cancer metabolism (in partnership with the JCSMR). Recently, a key advance has been done in the characterisation of breast cancer cells using their isotope signature.
