Mary Lou Guerinot is the Ronald and Deborah Harris Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at Dartmouth College. Professor Guerinot is a molecular geneticist whose principal expertise and research interests are in the area of metal transport and regulation of gene expression by metals. For most of the world plants are the major point of entry for essential metals into the food chain, so her work is laying the foundation for crops that offer solutions for malnutrition.
Dr. Guerinot earned her bachelor's degree in biology at Cornell University and her Ph.D. in biology from Dalhousie University, followed by postdoctoral studies at the University of Maryland and at the DOE-MSU Plant Research Laboratory. She is currently serving as Chair of the Biological Sciences section of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), as Chair of the Board of Trustees for the American Society of Plant Biologists (ASPB), and as associate editor for Plant, Cell and Environment.
