- 4. 'Dialing in the lipidome'
In the ongoing quest for healthier lifestyles and environmental sustainability, one of the biggest solutions might also be one of the tiniest: lipids. Think biofuels, cancer research, or even producing fish oils in plants.
- 5. Kramer lab's CoralspeQ featured in Nature magazine
The technology is featured alongside various new tools that are transforming marine science, as researchers rush to understand how coral reefs are affected by overfishing, pollution, global warming and ocean acidification.
- 6. CoralspeQ Debut at International Coral Reef Symposium
Atsuko blogs on the debut of a PRL-built device that measures coral reef health. "If we continue the current practice of land-use, with no further pollution control, over-fishing & etc., coral reefs would disappear by 2070."
- 7. Improving grain legume production in Zambia
The Kramer lab is using its homegrown tech, PhotosynQ, towards improving bean production in this African country, where 60 percent of the population lives in poverty and more than 350,000 people suffer from food insecurity.
- 8. Federica Brandizzi featured in Lansing State Journal
Brandizzi is studying ways to increase soybean and alfalfa yields. She is one of 11 MSU professors who have received grants through the university’s Michigan Translational Research and Commercialization program.
