Eric Stockinger

Associate Professor, Horticulture & Crop Science
CAPS Member

 

Eric Stockinger received his BS in Plant Science and his PhD in Botany (Plant Genetics) from the University of California at Riverside. During a brief 10 month postdoc in the Horticulture Department at Michigan State University he constructed the first molecular marker linkage map of the cherry genome. Following the work in cherry he went on to a second postdoc, also at MSU, working to understand molecular mechanisms of gene regulation during cold acclimation in Arabidopsis thaliana.

In 2000 he started his own lab at the Ohio State University where he began translational research studies to determine how some of the key mechanistic discoveries made in Arabidopsis translated to crop plant systems. Dr. Stockinger's research is focused on the molecular mechanisms of freezing tolerance and winter hardiness in the cereal crop plants barley, wheat, and rye.
