Ute Roessner was elected as a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science in 2022. Ute Roessner is a world leader in the development and application of metabolomics and lipidomics in the plant science and biotechnology fields. Her pioneering work established frontier technologies for parallel analyses of hundreds of metabolites in plants, enabling the comprehensive investigation of how plants function under environmental and genetic stimuli. Roessner’s research uncovered mechanisms that describe how plants respond to a variety of abiotic stresses, providing avenues for the development of more stress-resilient crops. Roessner also investigated communication and interaction mechanisms between roots and beneficial microbes to improve nutrient and water uptake to enhance plant performance.
