Dr. Hanley-Bowdoin is a William Neal Reynolds Distinguished Professor in the Department of Plant and Microbial Biology at the North Carolina State University (NCSU). She has a B.A. in Biochemistry from the University of California-Riverside, a M.Sc. in Biochemistry from the University of Toronto, and a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from the Rockefeller University. She performed postdoctoral research in Plant Pathology at Cornell University and in Corporate Research at the Monsanto Company. Dr. Hanley-Bowdoin then joined the faculty of NCSU, where she established a research program to characterize the mechanisms of geminivirus and plant chromosomal DNA replication. Her current research examines geminivirus/plant interactions and the evolution of insect-vectored DNA viruses using Cassava mosaic disease as a model. The geminivirus research involves collaborations with scientists at the BecA-ILRI Hub (Nairobi, Kenya) and the Mikocheni Agricultural Research Institute (Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania). Her group also collaborates with researchers at NCSU, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and the University of Texas at Austin on a project that examines the relationship between DNA replication timing programs and chromatin in maize and Arabidopsis nuclei. Her research program has been funded for over 25 years by grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Binational Agricultural Research & Development Fund (BARD), the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, and corporate sponsors. Dr. Hanley-Bowdoin is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and an associate editor of Plant Molecular Biology.
