Natalia.Dudareva is a Distinguished Professor in the Department of Biochemistry at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. She received her M.S. in Biology and Biochemistry from Novosibirsk State University, Russia and a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the Institute of Biochemistry in Kiev. She also earned PhD in Plant Molecular Biology from the University of Louis Pasteur in Strasbourg (France). After a postdoctoral training at the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor), Dr. Dudareva joined the Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture, Purdue University in 1997 and received a distinguished professorship in 2010. She joined the Department of Biochemistry in 2013. Research in the Dudareva laboratory focuses on understanding of 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 modeling.
