The Long Laboratory


Dr. Terri A. Long - Assistant Professor

Dr. Long joined the department of Plant Biology as an Assistant Professor in August of 2011. She obtained her undergraduate degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Dr. Terri Longwhere she worked with Dr. Jeffrey Dangl as a Morehead Scholar to characterize the genetics of plant disease resistance to fungal pathogens. As a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow at the University of Georgia, she then studied a key component of photosynthetic cyclic electron transport in Arabidopsis and Pinus taeda that helps control response to high light and drought under Dr. Sarah Covert. As an NSF Minority Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Duke University, Long worked with Dr. Philip Benfey on generating a high-resolution transcriptional profile of the root of the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana, which revealed two novel regulators of the iron deficiency response in plants. She was then appointed as an assistant professor in the Department of Biology at the University of Illinois at Chicago, where she continued her work on iron homeostasis in plants, before joining the faculty at NCSU. She teaches Plant Physiology (PB421).
