Very few people are able to imagine that they can look into the interior of a plant and see a 3D film directed by the very nature.  Emilia Wilmowicz, Dr. habil., NCU Professor from the Faculty of Biological and Veterinary Sciences is telling us about drought, lupin and polished "diamonds".

Your students won Diamond Grants in 2019 and 2020.  You lure very talented people.

Are you working with many enthusiasts?

One discovery triggers off another…

Do the best stay?

All started in 2011 with a scientific grant within a Multi-Year Program (2011-2015) financed by the Ministry of Agriculture and Development of Rural Areas (MRiRW), the main aim of which was to enlarge the acreage of Polish crops rich in proteins, which initially were to refill and later replace the resources used in fodder production. 

And everything began with yellow-colored European lupin.

There are so many legumes…

Something had to be done with this abscission

…and farmers complain

Did you succeed in winning a grant?

This was the first Diamond grant, but it referred to the abscission area, not the root…

Competition is not constructive and this is what my students know.  Competition weakens and leads to the loss of time and energy which can be used in team work. Aleksandra, who was the first laureate of Diamond grant, inspired the rest of the group.  Even a smallest success of each team member gives a lot of satisfaction and motivates the others.

Do your students compete with one another?

Do you examine everything in Toruń?

To see the effects of our research and what they lead to.

Is Sebastian's research similarly advanced?

Do plants get stressed?

What is the conclusion?

After Sebastian, will there be other diamond students?
