New research into a genetic mutation's role in breast cancer could open new treatment option for lung cancer, according to Dr. Eran Andrechek, a CMB faculty member 

Ashley Shade, a CMB faculty member, was selected as a 2019-2023 Ecological Society of America (ESA) Early Career Fellow for her pioneering work into advancing the understanding of the consequences of microbial diversity for resilience, how interactions among microbes impact resilience and how microbiomes can be leveraged to support plant stress tolerance and ecosystem stability.

Patrick O'Connell, a fourth-year CMB doctoral student, have discovered that a particular immune receptor has the ability to tone down the body’s immune response when activated on certain white blood cells. The finding could help find new treatments for HIV patients.

Dr. Andrechek's lab has found a way to boost healthy cells during chemo. Check out the article published by MSU Today or the study published by Dr. Andrechek and his team to learn more!

Dr. Ronald Chandler, assistant professor in the College of Human Medicine’s Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Biology, has received a 2017 Liz Tilberis Early Career Award and recognized for his committment to an investigative career in the field of ovarian cancer research.

Bradley Abramson, a graduate student and member of the Ducat Lab, is making breakthrough discoveries in bioproducts by producing new strains of cyanobacteria. Learn more about this fascinating discovery by reading his article, "Managing Photosynthetic Traffic Jams".

Congrats to Geoff Davis!

Geoff Davis's paper entitled "Limitations to photosynthesis by proton motive force-induced photosystem II photodamage" was published on elife on October, 4th. In addition, his presentation at the International Photosynthesis Congress in Maastricht Netherlands this summer was awarded a best talk/poster award. Congratulations Geoff!
