MSU researcher receives grant to continue studying pathogen resistance in plants
EAST LANSING, Mich. – Michigan State University (MSU) plant pathologist Brad Day has received a nearly $1 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to extend his study on how plants, at the cellular level, respond to disease threats.
The project has been funded by NSF for the past three years and will continue for another three. To date, Day and his colleagues have discovered that much more than immunity is involved in fending off disease. He said processes required for the growth, development and reproduction of plants are also instrumental.
