Dr Lee Hickey from Hickey Lab's impactful science is generating strong community, government and industry interest and research outcomes have received wide media coverage.  He is an advocate of promoting and communicating science to the public whilst leading a research team conducting genetic studies on factors that limit production of wheat and barley and develops novel tools and methodologies for plant breeders.  At The University of Queensland, he has played a pivotal role in developing ‘speed breeding’ technology;  his advice is sought internationally.  Dr Hickey has developed elite wheat varieties incorporating novel traits that are currently being commercialised by multiple breeding companies in Australia.

He is successful in attracting funding and has been named a Chief Investigator on $4.3M of grants in the last four years.  He has published 18 papers in international refereed journals, one provisional patent and one book chapter.
