Langridge, Peter
Phone08 8313 7368
Research Interests

Research areas include the development and application of molecular biology to crop improvement.


Professor Peter Langridge, is on the Advisory Boards of the European Union BioExploit and TriticeaeGenome Programs, the Australian Research Council Centre for Integrative Legume Research, the National Science Foundation Wheat D-Genome Program in the USA and the IBERS Science & Impact Advisory Board at Aberystwth, UK.

Peter is an Honorary Fellow of the Scottish Crop Research Institute and in 2007 was appointed Fellow of Food Standards Australia and New Zealand. Over the past five years he has published over 50 papers in international journals, co-authored seven book chapters and co-edited a book on Plant Genomics. 

During 2010 he was an invited speaker at conferences in the UK, Europe, China, India and USA. Peter was also on the organising committee for several international conferences during 2010. 

In 2010 Peter chaired the expert working group the ‘Prime Minister’s Science, Engineering and Innovation Council’ who delivered the report ‘Australian and Food Security in a Changing World outlining strategies to address food security globally.

Peter has supervised over 50 PhD students to completion and is on three journal editorial boards: Theoretical and Applied Genetics, Plant Methods and International Journal of Plant Genomics.
