VICCI participants from UCD are members of the UCD Centre for Plant Science. The UCD Centre for Plant Science brings together a broad range of scientists in order to focus on the implementation of sustainable crop production systems, the production of innovative products from plants and the development of plants containing new or increased amounts of health promoting substances that can contribute to combating a number of diseases and medical conditions. Our members are drawn predominantly from the UCD School of Biology and Environmental Science and the UCD School of Agriculture and Food Science. The Centre unites a large number of UCD plant scientists that investigate fundamental and applied aspects of plant science and work alongside industry in exploiting research breakthroughs.
