Katayoon Dehesh is a molecular biochemist focusing on regulatory mechanisms underlying stress-induced responses that have a central and evolutionarily-conserved role in organismal integrity and adaptation of plants to prevailing environmental conditions.
Specifically, she examines how stress signals are sensed, and the mechanisms by which they integrate targeted processes, which collectively culminate in organellar cooperativity – a phenomenon that is an evolutionary necessity for maintenance of cellular homoeostasis.
