UC Riverside plant cell biologist receives top scientific honor
Date:5/1/2012

RIVERSIDE, Calif. Natasha V. Raikhel, a distinguished professor of plant cell biology at the University of California, Riverside and one of the most highly-cited researchers in plant science, has been elected a member of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) for her excellence in original scientific research.

Elected along with 83 other members and 21 foreign associates from 15 countries, Raikhel brings the number of current UC Riverside faculty elected to NAS to five.

There are currently just over 2,150 active NAS members. Membership in the NAS is one of the highest honors given to a scientist or engineer in the United States. Among the NAS's renowned members are Albert Einstein, Robert Oppenheimer, Thomas Edison, Orville Wright, and Alexander Graham Bell.

"Dr. Raikhel's election to the NAS is a well-deserved tribute to her achievements and those of the Institute for Integrative Genome Biology, which she founded," said Marylynn V. Yates, the dean of UCR's College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences. "We are very fortunate to have someone with her vision and passion for science as a member of our faculty."

At UCR, Raikhel holds the Ernst and Helen Leibacher Endowed Chair in Plant Molecular, Cell Biology & Genetics. The director also of UCR's Center for Plant Cell Biology, she has been advancing knowledge in plant processes in her long and distinguished career. "Plants can live without us, but we cannot live without plants," she tells her students.

Early in her career, Raikhel recognized the importance of the genomic revolution to biology and pioneered the use of chemical genomics, which uses simple chemicals to alter the functions of
