Dr. Catherine Rameau, Senior Scientist, French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA).
Dr. Rameau carried out her doctoral thesis at the CNRS in Montpellier on the subject of the allocation of growth, reproduction and survival resources for gladioli. Since 1992, she has focused her research activities on understanding the genes controlling plant architecture in peas, in particular the role of strigolactones.
Since 2004, she has held the post of senior research scientist within the French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA), and in 2009 was awarded the Prix Roger-Jean et Chantal Gautheret by the French Academy of Sciences.
