Innovative agrochemical company, Redag Crop Protection has appointed Dr Mikael Courbot to the key role of head of biology. Dr Courbot joins from multi-national agribusiness Syngenta, where he spent nine years working across sites in Switzerland and the UK. His areas of expertise include mechanisms of heavy metal transport and homeostasis in fungi and plants, in depth knowledge on abiotic stresses, along with the development of screening platforms.
He said: “I’m delighted to join Redag Crop Protection at what it is clearly a very exciting time for the company. The chance to work for a company that is fast-developing a reputation across Europe as being at the forefront of addressing the agrochemical innovation gap appealed greatly to me. The facilities at Alderley Park were also a major draw. They are genuinely world-class and there is a real sense of energy generated by the multiple companies in co-habitation at the site.”
