2nd Global Summit on Plant Science
Teresa Hernández Sotomayor
Centro de Investigacion Cientifica de Yucatan, México
Dr. Teresa Hernández Sotomayor undertook her undergraduate, master's and doctorate studies at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). She joined the Scientific Research Centre of Yucatán (CICY) in July 1993. Dr. Hernádez's research has focused on the study of the mechanisms of signal transduction in plant cells. She has written over 80 international articles. Dr. Hernández's work has been cited by authors over 1,500 times. Her current research is the study of the basic mechanisms of signal transduction which is fundamental to solving problems such as for many pests and diseases that limit the performance of important cultivars such as rice, sorghum and wheat. The work of Dr. Hernandez in this aspect is important for Mexico's Southeast region.
