Yeast – it’s not just for baking and brewing. Scientists have long known that yeast genetics mirror human genetics in significant ways. In fact, this tiny organism contains the genetic secret to solving enormous human health issues. PNRI’s Dr. Aimee Dudley will share what yeast genetics teaches us about human cellular processes that go awry and cause disease. Join us for a look inside this intriguing aspect of genetics research and learn how it’s opening new horizons in the field of genetic engineering. Dr. Dudley, a passionate and approachable geneticist, will answer any questions.

Dr. Aimee Dudley is a genetics researcher internationally regarded for her expertise in yeast biology. Her commitment to collaboration and to developing and applying new technologies allows her to answer important biomedical questions.
