Welcome to the Geitmann Lab

How fast and big plants grow has a direct impact on agricultural yield. Parameters such as fruit size, abundance of seeds and quantity of biomass directly correlate to the efficiency of plant tissues to grow and differentiate into functional structures. Plant growth is determined at the cellular level - through regulation of cell division and cellular growth processes. The Geitmann Lab investigates the biomechanical underpinnings of these processes. Find out about the research themes here.

Professor Geitmann established her lab at McGill University after joining the University in 2015 as Dean of the Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and Associate Vice-Principal (Macdonald Campus).

The Geitmann Lab at McGill University is affiliated with the Department of Plant Science located at the Macdonald Campus.

The Macdonald Campus is home to the Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. It is located in Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue, at the Western tip of the Montreal Island.

McGill University is one of the top universities in the world. It is located in the City of Montreal (Québec, Canada) which offers a bilingual environment and cosmopolitan flair.
