Welcome to the Niyogi lab!

Fighting climate change with photosynthesis

The lab’s long-term research goals are to understand how photosynthetic energy conversion works, how it is regulated, and how it might be improved to help meet the world’s needs for food, fuel, and carbon sequestration to fight climate change. 

Current lab members use a wide array of experimental organisms and interdisciplinary approaches to (1) investigate fundamental questions about the regulation of photosynthesis, (2) elucidate molecular mechanisms underlying the operation of the oceanic biological carbon pump, and (3) apply this fundamental knowledge to increase photosynthetic efficiency and carbon sequestration by plants and algae.

We maintain a friendly and interactive lab that values scientific excellence, diversity, creativity, open access, and interdisciplinary collaboration.
