Laurie Bell, University of Cambridge
Dr Laurence Bell is a Research Associate at the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotech, University of Cambridge.
Laurie is involved with ‘BlightSense’; the development of a rapid biosensor system for in-field early detection of potato blight. The biosensor will identify the presence of the disease-causing pathogen. Greater yield and quality will be attained as a result of improved disease control, reducing crop waste and fungicide costs, leading to greater yield and quality.
