Chaoqun Carrie Shen

Studied as a joint student at the University of Adelaide for two years before, Carrie is excited to be returning to UA as an Innovation Fellow. Her Ph.D. project
mainly focused on revealing the molecular mechanisms of inflorescence and
floret development in cereal crops. In the future, she will be working on
developing and establishing efficient gene editing and plant transformation
pipelines at UA. She is very much looking forward to starting her work and
research at the Centre with all the excellent Centre members!


The ARC Training Centre for Accelerated Future Crops Development is funded by the Australian Research Council under its Industrial Transformation Training Hubs Program to run from 2022 to 2027.

It is a collaboration of universities, government research agencies and the Australian grains sector’s key stakeholders in training, R&D, social engagement, responsible innovation, breeding, marketing and delivery.

It also has international partners in gene-editing, SynBio, crop breeding, and, other partnerships for co-developing deep technologies to transform the agriculture industry and global food security.
