Project title: Elucidation of mechanisms behind benzoxazinoid action

Project Description:

My research interest is in benzoxazinoids. Benzoxazinoids are the secondary metabolites present in the cereals maize, wheat and rye, and plant famililes Acanthaceae, Ranunculaceae, and Lamiaceae.

These phytochemicals function as defense compounds in plants and recently have attained focus as a therapeutic and health promoting agent in humans. However, the action mechanisms of benzoxazinoids remain poorly understood. In this PhD project, I aim to unravel the mechanism of action of benzoxazinoids.
