Dr. Fontes research program is focused on: (i) plant defense signaling pathways directed against biotic and abiotic stresses; (ii) plant response to geminivirus infection; (iii) plant water deficit; and (iv) the complex molecular network of adaptive responses in plants that integrates the ER-unfolded protein response with the osmotic and cell death signals.
