IZOBRAZBA: Maja Ravnikar je doktorirala leta 1991 na Oddelku za biologijo, Biotehniške fakultete, Univerze v Ljubljani, ki ji je tudi podelila naziv izredni profesor za področje biotehnologije.
ZAPOSLITEV IN VODSTVENE FUNKCIJE: Leta 1984 se je zaposlila na Nacionalnem inštitutu za biologijo. Od leta 2001 vodi Oddelek za biotehnologijo in sistemsko biologijo s 37 zaposlenimi. Je strokovni vodja Instrumentalnega centra Planta, ki je bil ustanovljen leta 1994. Od leta 1999 vodi raziskovalni program “Biotehnologija in sistemska biologija rastlin”, Raziskovalni program je bil v letu 2004 izbran s strani Javne agencije za raziskovalno dejavnost RS za enega izmed 19ih najboljših programov in v letu 2009, zaradi visoke kvalitete dela podaljšan za najdaljše možno obdobje. Skupaj s sodelavci je vzpostavila raziskave rastlinske biotehnologije in patologije rastlin in razvila številne moderne molekularne metode in druga orodja sistemske biologije. Vodi pooblaščeni diagnostični laboratorij za določanja mikroorganizmov za potrebe Fitosanitarne uprave (MKGP), fitosanitarne inšpekcije in intenzivno sodeluje s podjetji.
DELO V STROKOVNIH IN MEDNARODNIH ZDRUŽENJIH: Od leta 1995 do 2005 je bila kot predstavnica NIB članica skupščine družbenikov Tehnološkega parka Ljubljana. Bila je tudi članica Sveta za tehnološki razvoj na Ministrstvu za gospodarstvo. Je članica Znanstveno raziskovalnega sveta Javne agencije za raziskovalno dejavnost Republike Slovenije. Od leta 2008 je članica prve razvojne skupine »za življenje in zdravje« v Svetu vlade RS za konkurenčnost. Je članica Sveta Centra za funkcijsko genomiko in biočipe Medicinske fakulete v Ljubljani. Tekom delovanja Centra odličnosti za farmacujo in biotehnologijo je bila v centru predstavnica NIB. Je članica sveta zavoda COBIK, centra odličnosti za biosenzoriko, instrumentacijo in procesno kontrolo, ki ga je z drugimi soustanovil NIB leta 2009. Je dolgoletna članica Strokovne skupine za zdravstveno varstvo rastlin v sadjarstvu, vinogradništvu in hmeljarstvu. Delovala je kot članica ekspertne skupine za ciljne raziskovalne projekte pri Ministrstvu za obrambo RS. Kot predstavnica Slovenije je aktivna članica evropskega društva za patologijo rastlin EPPO (European Plant Protection Organization) in do sedaj je delovala v Panelu za zagotavljanje kakovosti diagnostičnih laboratorijev in v Panelu za bakteriologijo. Je ustanovna članica Evropskega združenju za fitobakteriologijo (APB) ustanovljenega leta 2007 in mednarodne organizacije za raziskave virusa PVY -PVY WIDE ustanovljene 2008. Je članica mednarodne mreže za raziskave virusov v okolje PVEN in članica mednarodne delovne skupine za viruse na zelenjadnicah in stročnicah (IWGLVV), v okviru katere je vodila organizacijo 3. mednarodne konference v Ljubljani. Sodelovala je pri organizaciji mnogih mednarodnih in nacionalnih kongresov in delavnic.
