Professor John Carr

Professor Carr investigates how virus infection influences interactions of plants with other organisms and plants’ ability to withstand environmental stresses. His research interests include viral subversion of plant resistance, viral gene expression, plant-virus-insect vector interactions, and the effects of virus infection on interactions of plants with beneficial insects such as pollinators. He collaborates extensively on these topics internationally, and particularly with colleagues in sub-Saharan Africa.


Global food security is a major research priority for UK and international science.

Cambridge Global Food Security is a virtual centre at the University of Cambridge. We promote an interdisciplinary approach to addressing the challenge of ensuring all people at all times have access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and preferences for an active and healthy life.
