Full Professor

Academic history

Georgina Hernández received her undergraduate (biochemistry and molecular biology) and PhD (molecular biology) degrees from the National University of México (UNAM). During her studies she performed research on the regulation of nitrogen / carbon metabolism of the model fungus Neurospora crassa, under the supervision of Jaime Mora. She did a postdoctoral training (1986-1988) as a Visiting Scientist in BioTechnica International, Inc., Agricultural Biotechnology Department (Cambridge, MA, USA) headed by Frank Cannon. During her sabbatical leave from UNAM (2005-2006) she performed research at the University of Minnesota – USDA, Department of Agronomy and Plant Genetics, and at the Max-Planck-Institute for Molecular Plant Physiology (Golm, Germany) collaborating as a visiting scientist in the groups of Carroll P. Vance and Michael Udvardi, respectively.

She currently holds the position of Professor (Investigador Titular C) at the Center for Genomic Sciences (CCG), formerly the Nitrogen Fixation Research Center (CIFN) from UNAM (Cuernavaca, México). She was hired as faculty of the Center since 1983. She has served as the Director of the Center from 1997 to 2005. She has served UNAM in multiple evaluating committees, as member of different university councils and as coordinator of teaching programs. Currently she serves as Head of the Eukaryotic Functional Genomics Research Program from CCG – UNAM. She is a member of the Mexican Academy of Sciences and has served this institution as Treasurer (2014-2017).

Since almost 30 years ago she has performed research in the area of Plant Biology, related to nitrogen metabolism and, mainly, to the nitrogen-fixing symbiosis (SNF) of legume plants with the Rhizobia soil bacteria. Current research from her group, in collaboration with colleagues from different countries, is focused in the SNF of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) that is the main legume for human consumption in the world. Her pioneer work contributed to the development the functional genomic of P. vulgaris, namely transcriptomics and metabolomics. Using these approaches she investigates different levels of the regulation of gene expression in SNF common bean, including transcriptional and post-transcriptional levels to decipher novel global regulators of the symbiosis such as transcriptional factors, microRNAs and the role of alternative splicing. Her scientific contributions have been published in more than 50 articles in international journals, have received more than 2,000 citations in the literature (H index = 24) and are recognized by colleagues form her research area.

Since the beginning of her career she has taught courses in undergraduate and graduate programs and has contributed in the formation of new scientists as advisor of post-doctors and graduate students.
