Giulia Zacchello

Based on an endowment made by Nebion AG and Professor Wilhelm Gruissem in memory of Professor Lars Hennig, the Linnean Centre is awarding a monetary reward to the best Plant Biology PhD-thesis defended in Uppsala for the third consecutive year. The Linnean Centre for Plant Biology has decided to bestow the “Lars Hennig Award for the best PhD thesis in Plant Biology 2021” to Dr. Giulia Zacchello, from the Department of Plant Ecology and Evolution at Uppsala University, who has produced an outstanding thesis entitled “Ecology and evolution of local adaptation in Arabidopsis thaliana”, which provided several new important insights into the ecological and genetic mechanisms of adaptive differentiation among A. thaliana populations.

Congratulations, Giulia!
