A University of Dundee scientist based at the James Hutton Institute has been awarded almost £1.25 million to study the interaction between plants and soil microbes, with the ultimate aim of boosting sustainable food production.

Dr Davide Bulgarelli, a principal investigator at the UoD Division of Plant Sciences, located at the Institute's Invergowrie site, has been awarded two research grants each exceeding £620,000 from the European Commission and the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC).
