Dame Caroline Dean is a plant scientist working at the John Innes Centre. She is focused on understanding the molecular controls used by plants to seasonally judge when to flower. She is specifically interested in vernalisation — the acceleration of flowering in plants by exposure to periods of prolonged cold.

This talk and Q&A was filmed in the Ri on 28 June 2019.
