Welcome to Abidur lab, Eric!!!
March 2019
Arif Ashraf (Ph.D.), Yukie Kobayashi (M.Ag.), Kenji Sugita (B.Ag.) and Keita Ito (B.Ag.) successfully graduated. Congratulations to all of you!!! Arif joined at Michigan State University as a postdoctoral fellow. Yukie started working at Hokkaido government agriculture extension, Kenji and Keita enrolled as masters students at Iwate University and will continue their research work in Abidur Lab. Best of luck to all of you! December 2018 Dr. Abidur Rahman, Yukie Kobayashi, Marika Yamauchi, and Kenji Sugita attended 3rd International Symposium on Innovations in Plant and Food Science held in Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University, China. Dr. Rahman gave a talk about plant GNOM ARF-GEF protein in "Responses to Abiotic Stresses" session, and Yukie, Marika, and Kenji presented in poster sessions. Threy all received poster awards for their research work. Congratulations!!!!

Plant Hormone Biology
The primary research interest of my lab lies in understanding the hormonal regulation of plant growth and development under optimum condition and various stresses. For this, we are primarily focusing on the plant hormone auxin, which influences plant behavior from embryogenesis to senescence and exhibits complex interactions with other hormones.
