Welcome to the Giraldo Lab!


Plant physiology and nanobiotechnology


We aim to develop nanomaterial based tools to study and engineer plant physiological mechanisms at levels of organization ranging from organelles to tissues and whole plants. We are discovering how nanoparticle physical and chemical properties affect their interaction with plant organelles and cellular structures. Using a plant nanobionics approach, we seek to enable plants with novel or augmented functions.






We thank the support of NSF MCB Cell Dynamics and Function cluster for funding our work on plant ROS signaling using a nanobiotechnology approach
