Paul Kron (Research Associate)

I am a Research Associate in the lab of Dr. Brian Husband. I received my B. Arts & Sci. from McMaster University and my M. Sc. from the University of Guelph. My main areas of research are flow cytometry applications and methodology, with an emphasis on pollen flow cytometry, and plant reproductive biology, especially reproduction in the genus Malus (domestic apples and native crabapples).
