Takaki is a project leader at the Institute for Plant Sciences. Before joining the Institute, he was a team leader at the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research in Cologne, where he led a group studying disease resistance mechanisms mediated by plant NLRs using barley (Hordeum vulgare) and Arabidopsis thaliana as experimental models. He is interested in how plant and animal innate immune systems have evolved and how these systems mechanistically execute disease resistance programmes. In addition to his position at the university of Cologne, Takaki is maintaining his association with Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research.

 

Keiichi Hasegwa
