Emran Ali joins Amiri lab

On July 1st, Emran AlAli smi joined the Pathology Lab at Washington State University’ Tree Fruit Research and Extension Center, Wenatchee, WA, as a Postdoctoral Research Associate under the supervision of D. Achour Amiri. Ali completed his MS and PhD in Plant molecular biology and virology from Ehime University, Japan. His doctoral work focused on the molecular bases of plant-microbe interactions and primarily on RNA silencing-mediated disease resistance mechanisms. For the last two years, Ali held a postdoctoral position within the Center for Applied Plant Sciences (CAPS) ‘SOYRES’ team at the Ohio State University. He has been working to assess the effect of down-regulation on resistance manifestation and functional analysis of soybean candidate genes potentially involved in quantitative resistance to microbial pathogens and other pests. In his current position, Ali will be investigating the molecular mechanisms involved in fungicide resistance development in tree fruit pathogens as well as understating the host-pathogen interaction in some fungal pathogens newly reported in the Pacific Northwest.
