Professor Dominique Bergmann, one of the world’s leading plant developmental biologists is based at Stanford University in California. She is associated with the Stanford Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine, an investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and over several years has worked with the Gordon and Betty Moore foundation. Leveraging stomata development as the model system her research investigates cell fate, cell polarity, cell communication, stem cell self-renewal as well as the underlying conserved biological principles of these processes in different plant systems. Dominique’s work has made substantial contributions to our understanding of Arabidopsis development, having identified and characterised many key players involved in stomata development and pattern formation in the epidermis of plant leaves. Her research has been published in the highest-ranking science journals including Nature, Science and Cell and is widely recognized by her peers in plant biology and cell biology. She is the recipient of many awards including the 2010 American Society of Plant Biologists’ Charles Schull Award, and the prestigious Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers. In 2017, Dominique was elected into the United States National Academy of Sciences.
