Current Solomon lab members


Peter Solomon solomon anu
Professor Peter Solomon (email)


Lab Leader

Peter completed his undergraduate degree and subsequent PhD studies at The University of Queensland investigating the role of molybdenum containing enzymes in the photosynthetic bacterium Rhodobacter capsulatus. He then undertook a postdoctoral position at the Carlsberg Laboratory in Denmark investigating the nutritional basis of the tomato-Cladosporium fulvum interaction. In 2000, he moved to the Australian Centre for Necrotrophic Fungal Pathogens located at Murdoch University in Perth to further investigate fungal-plant interactions using the Parastagonospora nodorum-wheat interaction. In 2008, Peter accepted a Lab Leader position in the Research School of Biology at The Australian National University where his research group is focused on understanding the molecular mechanisms underpinning fungal diseases in cereal crops.


Peter is also the Director of the ARC Plant Biosecurity Training Centre which is focussed on training future leaders and innovators in plant biosecurity to protect Australia's agricultural, horticultural and environmental sectors.
