Guillaume Tcherkez

Guillaume was 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 explored 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). A key advance has been done in the characterisation of breast cancer cells using their isotope signature.

Guillaume was part of the Centre from 2016 to 2018
