Dr. Natalia Dudareva, Distinguished Professor, Department of Biochemistry, Purdue University, presents “Plant Volatiles: From Emission to Perception”

Wednesday, April 7, at 12:10 p.m. via Zoom.

Natalia Dudareva is a Distinguished Professor in the Department of Biochemistry and an Interim Director for Center for Plant Biology at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. Research in Dudareva laboratory focuses on understanding biochemical and molecular mechanisms controlling the formation of primary and secondary (phenylpropanoid and terpenoid) metabolites in plants using the power of genetic and biochemical approaches combined with metabolic flux analysis and modelling. Recent work from her lab appears in Nature Chemical Biology (Liao et al., 2021; Lynch et al., 2020; Boachon et al., 2019); Nature Communications (Qian et al., 2019); Nature Plants (Henry et al., 2018), and Science (Adebesin et al., 2017).
