George Coupland


Professor George Coupland is a Director of the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research in Cologne, Germany, a position he has held since 2001. Between 1989 and 2001 he was a Group Leader at the John Innes Centre, Norwich, UK. He earned his PhD from the University of Edinburgh and was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Cologne. His group defined the mechanisms by which plants detect day length in the leaf and use this information to trigger floral development at the shoot apex. They also developed Arabis alpina as a comparative system to study the perennial life cycle, and defined mechanisms controlling juvenility and seasonal flowering. He is a Senior Editor of The Plant Cell and a Thomson Reuters Highly Cited Researcher. He has been elected to EMBO, The Royal Society (London) and the National Academy of Sciences (USA).
