Ashley Alvarez serves as a scientific advisor with more than 7 years of teaching experience in biochemistry and biotechnology. Her early research centered on characterization of a novel class of enhanced ethylene response (eer) regulators and their synergy with another well-known phytohormone, auxin. Dr. Alvarez also investigated two chemical compounds that opposed auxin responses, and subsequently blocked aspects of ethylene response, further supporting interdependent interactions. Most recently, her research involved the study of agravitropic Arabidopsis seedlings and the role of the vacuole in gravisensing. The project was funded by NASA with a specific aim to better understand the mechanisms of gravity perception in young seedlings on earth. There is potential to couple the discoveries of gravitropic signaling with known chemical inhibitors of gravitropism and vacuole trafficking in order to modulate plant growth conditions in microgravity.
Dr. Alvarez completed her post-doctoral research in the field of Plant and Microbial Biology at North Carolina State University, and earned her Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the University of California, Riverside.
