About Dr. Dudley

“I love the limitless ability to ask questions that a powerful model organism like yeast can answer.”

As a senior investigator at the Pacific Northwest Research Institute (PNRI), Aimée Dudley, PhD 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.

An Experienced and Driven Researcher

Aimée serves as a scientific advisor to FenoLogica Biosciences, a company PNRI helped start up based on technology from her lab. She is also an associate editor of two scientific journals, PLos Genetics and G3: Genes, Genomes, and Genetics.

Aimée earned her PhD in genetics at Harvard Medical School, where she studied gene expression in Dr. Fred Winston’s laboratory. She also completed a postdoctoral fellowship with Dr. George Church at Harvard Medical School, where she studied genomics and systems biology.

An Advocate for Engaging the Next Generation of Scientists

As PNRI’s Director of Educational Outreach, she partners with community groups to bring high school and undergraduate students from underrepresented communities to PNRI to explore science as a career. She also serves as a mentor to graduate students through her faculty positions with the University of Washington’s Department of Genome Sciences and the Molecular and Cellular Biology Graduate Program.
