Background

Marisa Otegui received her PhD from University of La Plata, Argentina in 1996. She is currently a Professor of Cell and Developmental biology at the Department of Botany, The University of Wisconsin-Madison. Marisa investigates the mechanisms that regulate vesicle trafficking in plant cells to determine how proteins and metabolites are trafficked between different cellular compartments. She has been pivotal in investigating the molecular mechanisms involved in phytochemical trafficking and storage developing imaging approaches based on the fluorescence decay of anthocyanins to identify anthocyanin in living cells. Marisa has investigated the fate of seed storage proteins by tracking the transport and post-translational processing of storage proteins within different cell types using live cell imaging developing magnificent imaging tools and approaches for plant cell biologists. Marisa is a member of the F1000 Faculty.
