Background

Dr Adrienne Roeder is a Nancy M. & Samuel C. Fleming Term Associate Professor at the Weill Institute for Cell and Molecular Biology, and the Section of Plant Biology, School of Integrative Plant Science. She obtained her PhD from the University of California, San Diego in 2005, where she identified a gene in Arabidopsis that resulted in the particular shape of the seedpod. Her studies on cell growth and division inform the origins of cell size diversity, and are changing the way we perceive cell division and the identity it takes afterwards. Her laboratory also investigates the molecular networks controlling giant and small cell patterning, which have powerful implications for engineering better crop plants and biofuels. Roeder also mentors and inspires middle school girls through the Expanding Your Horizons program, and uses research oriented activities in her undergraduate teaching.
