Jurandir Magalhaes obtained his PhD degree in 2002 on Field Crop Science (plant genetics and breeding) from Cornell University, USA. Since 2002, Magalhaes works as a scientist at Embrapa Maize and Sorghum, Brazil. He is also a Faculty member in the Graduate Program in Genetics, Federal University of Minas Gerais since 2010. His research focuses on the molecular and quantitative genetics of abiotic stress tolerance primarily in sorghum and maize including comparative genomics with other staple food crop species. More specifically, his research addresses the role of root biology in crop adaptation to soil-based stresses including drought, insufficient mineral nutrients, and toxic metals. He has published in peer-reviewed journals such as: Nature Genetics, PNAS, The Plant Journal, Plant Physiology, etc.
