Research engineer - Laboratory of Plant Reproduction and Development
Géraldine Brunoud, a research engineer at the CNRS and member of the laboratory of Plant Reproduction and Development (RDP), is one of the 20 winners of the 2016 CNRS Crystal Prize.
Géraldine Brunoud works within the "hormonal signaling and development" team led by Teva Vernoux.
Their research aims to answer a central question in plant developmental biology: how does positional information provided by hormonal signals regulate spatio-temporal patterns of cell identities during development? For this purpose, the team uses multidisciplinary, quantitative approaches to study how the dynamic distribution of the plant hormones controls differential gene expression patterns at the shoot apical meristem.
