Federica Brandizzi: Lack of green thumb no obstacle
We tend to assume that all botanists have green thumbs. But friends and colleagues stopped giving Federica Brandizzi plants long ago.View story photos
MSU to use $900,000 NSF grant to unveil plants’ gates and signaling secrets
MSU has landed a $900,000 National Science Foundation grant to learn more about how plants’ molecular gates close and alert defenses for battling diseases.View story photos
Diamonds: An engineer’s best friend
An MSU campus laboratory has been transformed into a high-tech diamond mine of sorts as Spartan engineers “grow” the precious gems layer by layer. Forget about fine jewelry — they’re researching and developing exceptionally durable diamonds for leading-edge electronic, mechanical and thermal applications as part of a global industry partnership.View story photos

MSU engineering grant helps smooth ride for atomic nuclei through FRIB
Researchers from MSU’s College of Engineering will use a $1.1 million grant to try to make a nucleus’s journey through the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams a little more fast and efficient.View story photos
Researcher recognized by Parkinson's Disease Foundation
MSU researcher Ivette Martinez Sandoval is one of five scientists to receive a postdoctoral fellowship from the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation.
Stress relief makes for healthier corn crops
MSU researchers are partners in a collaborative research project that could provide some well-deserved relief to stressed-out corn crops. The group is studying how corn responds to environmental stresses, and examining ways of increasing stress resistance through genetics.View story photos

James McCusker, professor of chemistry in MSU’s College of Natural Science and director of MSU’s Center of Research Excellence in Complex Materials, has been named a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry.
Five scientists selected as FRIB Fellows
Five scientists have been selected as the first Facility for Rare Isotope Beams-Chinese Scholarship Council research fellows.
MSU builds high-tech test track to improve crop performance
Automakers torture test their cars on special tracks that simulate real driving conditions. Germany’s automakers have their fabled Nurburgring track. GM has its Desert Proving Ground in California. Now MSU has DEPI – Dynamic Environmental Photosynthetic Imaging – to test-drive plants so scientists and plant breeders can make them work better and produce more.View story photos
