Welcome to the Department of Plant Biology

  The Department of Plant Biology at the University of Szeged is one of the leading university departments in Hungary dealing with teaching and research in plant biology.

Our research activity is focused mainly on stress physiology including molecular responses of plants to environmental stressors, especially in the field of drought stress and phytoremediation of polluted environment.

We have well-equipped laboratories for photosynthesis and electrophysiology for investigating membrane-transport processes. The Botanic Garden is a cooperating partner of the department.


The department consists of 12 academic staff and 4 PhD students, and about 10 affiliated academic staff members from different research institutes, technicians and MSc students.
