Fall of 2021 New Researchers

This Fall, Emmanuel Chukwuma and Juliet Ochola, have joined the lab to assist in research while they work on completing their PhD’s. If you would like to reach out to them, please view the People tab for contact information.

We also have the addition of two new undergraduate students, Haley Attix and Nolan Ives. Haley is studying for her bachelor’s in zoology, while Nolan is working on completing his bachelor’s in biology.

We look forward to having everyone in this lab this semester.

Plant Health 2020 meeting

We are excited to have two poster presentations at the annual Plant Health meeting by the American Phytopathological Society. Postdoc Vineeta Rai and graduate student Althea Loucanides highlight their recent results, which unravel constitutive and stress-induced root exudation of secondary metabolites in response to biotic and abiotic stressors. Their work builds a foundation to understand the biochemistry of plant interactions with their biotic and abiotic environment below ground.
