  • Biography

    Dr. Walter Gassmann is a professor in the Division of Plant Sciences at the University of Missouri and currently serves as the Interim Director of the Christopher S. Bond Life Sciences Center. He obtained a MS in Natural Sciences from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich and a PhD in Biology from the University of California, San Diego. He is an elected fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Research in the Gassmann lab focuses on the innate immune system of plants, in particular how activation and suppression of the immune system are regulated for optimal plant growth. Current interests include the regulation of immune protein complexes by post-translational protein modifications and of transcriptional networks. Plants are a wonderful teaching tool in biology and have a long history of contributing to our fundamental understanding of biological processes, from genetics to the discovery of viruses as a new class of infectious agents. Dr. Gassmann also enjoys mentoring undergraduate and graduate student researchers, and based on his own experiences as a student is committed to providing opportunities for experiential learning in the life sciences.
