Marilena Ronzan is a PhD student in Botany at the University La Sapienza in Rome, specialized in the response of plants to Arsenic and Cadmium contamination. In her Master Thesis she studied the response of the hyperaccumulator fern pteris vittata to the presence of Cadmium alone or combined with As (Ronzan et al., 2016).Her PhD project is focused on the hormonal response, in particular of auxin and jasmonates, in Oryza sativa and Arabidopsis thaliana after exposure to As and Cd.

She is interested in understanding the response of plants to a frequent cause of soil and water contamination in order to find solutions to prevent or at least reduce the effect of such elements in plant production and their presence in the food chain. 


Abstract : Arsenic and cadmium affect the crosstalk between auxin and jasmonate in Oryza sativa L.
