Cambridge Global Food Security

An Interdisciplinary Research Centre at the University of Cambridge


Key publications: 

Professor Griffiths's lab investigates plant molecular, physiological and environmental processes which regulate productivity and CO2 sequestration, and aim to improve the operating efficiency of the primary carboxylase, Rubisco, and match water availability to use. Stable isotope methods are used to evaluate the origins and regulation of diverse photosynthetic carbon concentrating mechanisms (CCM). The research carried out at the lab translates via fieldwork into food security and biomass crop productivity, as well as natural community diversity.
