Gladys Mbofung-Curtis, Ph.D.

Growing up in the tropics with no winter between growing seasons, I often wondered…do plants feel pain when they are suffering from some infection? I now know they do through various symptom expressions. Here at NewLeaf, I enjoy helping crops escape infection or boost their physiology with the aid of M-trophs. When I am not busy tending to crops, I spend time with my spouse creating pens, bringing old classic cars back to life or trying to look interested while he is fishing.
