- 1. [LINK] Federica Brandizzi named AAAS fellow
The American Association for the Advancement of Science has recognized Dr. Brandizzi for her work on the endoplasmic reticulum and the Golgi apparatus, organelles pivotal to food production in plant cells.
- By By Jessi Adler
- 2. Stressed plant roots warn the rest of the plant of looming dangers
When facing drought or heat stress, roots are advance scouts that warn the rest of the plant to prepare for the big 'hit.'
- By By Igor Houwat, Federica Brandizzi, Ya-Shiuan Lai
- 3. Two plant cell 'hotspots' tell the cell where to import its resources
The two proteins, called VAP, indicate where endocytosis, a form of transport in which a living cell imports molecules, should occur.
- By By Igor Houwat, Giovanni Stefano
- 4. Study shows how a gene helps plants manage their protein production in stressful times
The NPR1 gene keeps the unfolded protein response, a plant fail-safe for stressful times, in check.

- 5. Announcing the inaugural winners of the Keegstra and Thomashow 2018 Travel Award
Pengfei Cao and Alyssa Preiser, both graduate students, were each awarded $1200 to present their research at upcoming science conferences.
- By By Igor Houwat
- 6. Growing a garden in space
Scientists are studying how plants adapt to space environments. The NASA funded research aims to help us grow fresh produce beyond the planet Earth.

- 7. Growing pains and how that might affect seed quality
The Brandizzi lab is showing how extreme heat negatively impacts seed quality in plants targeted for producing biofuels.
- By By Igor Houwat, Sang-Jin Kim
- 8. Growth-defense gene pulls many strings in plant cell factories
The Brandizzi lab has demonstrated how one master gene fine-tunes how massive protein factories in plant cells allocate resources to growth and defense functions.
- By By Igor Houwat, Cristina Ruberti
- 9. Investing in cell wall growth for improved photosynthesis
Changes in leaf cell wall make-up can dramatically affect how large or thick leaves grow. This knowledge may help improve how crops intercept light and exchange gas with the atmosphere.
- By By Igor Houwat, Sarathi Weraduwage
- 10. Discovering what keeps cellular cargo on track
The Brandizzi lab have identified how plants’ largest cell factory moves to maintain vital functions, which could lead to advances in improving plant cells’ critical functions and growing better crops.
