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

specific proteins without killing the plant, to advance our knowledge of plant processes.

Her lab is actively harnessing the high-throughput capacity of new multidisciplinary methods, such as engineering modeling tools and computational biology, to integrate molecular information into a more comprehensive "systems biology" view of the organism. Her studies of the molecular mechanisms governing trafficking in plants and of genetic control of "cell wall polysaccharide biosynthesis" one of the most challenging problems in plant biochemistry have made lasting scientific contributions in plant biology.

"Natasha is being recognized for pioneering the use of novel genetic and biochemical techniques to elucidate the organization and function of the secretory system in plant cells," said Susan Wessler, a distinguished professor of genetics at UCR and a member and home secretary of the NAS. "We have been close friends for over 30 years and I am incredibly proud of her accomplishments. We can now work together to improve both UCR and the NAS!"

Originally slated to be a concert pianist, Raikhel chose biology over the conservatory a fortuitous choice for today she enjoys an international reputation in plant cell biology. She is a world-class expert in the area of secretory trafficking, explaining the key role of the vacuole and its numerous functions essential for plant survival.

Frequently invited as a keynote speaker to national and international conferences and symposiums, she has contributed to the field of plant biology for three decades and has guided many graduate students and post-doctoral scholars in their research. She has served on numerous government and industry advisory boards and editorial boards, and as editor-in-chief of one of the oldest and most well-respected plant science journals, Plant Physiology, from 2000-2005.
