Dr Andrew Dare


Kia ora, I am a molecular biologist and biochemist passionate about improving the chemical composition of fruit to benefit human health and wellness . My research focuses on understanding the chemical pathways that produce bioactive compounds in plants.To do this I use genomic tools, chemistry and mass spectrometry imaging (MSI). I also have a strong interest in communicating great science as a member of the Plant & Food Research Scigest podcast team.
