Kristin Mayo

Lab Manager

Kristin joined the PlantSciences team with twenty years of experience in a wide variety of plant biotechnology research areas. In pursuit of plant research, she has worked in companies large and small; at universities, institutes and in corporate settings, and much to her surprise, across three continents. Her plant tissue culture and transformation background includes production of secondary metabolites with anti-cancer activity, vaccines and a range of agricultural traits. When not at work, cultivating plants in plates, tubes, boxes or flasks she goes home to care for even more plants. Hidden between the leaves and stems are a few pets and a very understanding spouse, who is slowly adapting to life in a jungle.
