Our students were part of a MSU team that met with staff at the offices of Senator Peters, Senator Stabenow, Representative Slotkin and four other representatives to advocate for science funding.By By David Arnosti, Val Osowski, Igor Houwat
Cheryl Kerfeld is the Hannah Distinguished Professor of Structural Bioengineering in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and at the MSU-DOE Plant Research Laboratory.By By Cheryl Kerfeld, Igor Houwat
The new methods let scientists assemble the factories on demand and insert custom molecules inside them for further processing. The aim is to eventually design sustainable medical, industrial, or energy applications.By By Igor Houwat, Andrew Hagen, Jeff Plegaria, Bryan Ferlez; Banner image by Michigan State University Communications
The Kerfeld lab announces two new methods for manipulating bacterial factories for biotech aims: one is to screen and extract the factories, the other is to predictably insert custom enzymes in them.By By Igor Houwat, Andrew Hagen; Banner of cyanobacteria by MSU CABS
Han Bao and Eric Poliner have won the 2018 Anton Lang Memorial Award.By By Igor Houwat
The award will provide up to $300,000 over three years to support the post-doc's research on marine cyanobacterial photoprotection.By By Igor Houwat, Maria Agustina Dominguez-Martin
The fellowship is the oldest of its kind in the nation. Aiko will benefit from a three-year annual stipend of $34,000, a $12,000 cost of education allowance for tuition and fees, and opportunities for career development.By By Igor Houwat
A peek into the logistics of how bacterial nanofactories move electrons, towards creating chemical products. Future apps include renewable energy and medical tools.By Igor Houwat, Jeff Plegaria
The new family of proteins protects cyanobacteria from sunlight damage, and they are interesting for use in synthetic medical or renewable energy applications.By Igor Houwat, Han Bao
Scientists show how the two OCP parts interact and also create new synthetic versions of that protein. The goal is to use it in synthetic healthcare systems, powered by light.By Igor Houwat, Sigal Lechno-Yossef

A new study from Michigan State University is shedding light on how plants could potentially become more efficient at photosynthesis. The long-term implications of this research range from improved agricultural productivity to predicting the effects of climate change.
Josh Vermaas, the newest addition to the MSU-DOE Plant Research Laboratory faculty body, has begun his assistant professorship this month. Josh is a computational biophysicist whose research interests include developing computational models to better understand membrane processes and plant materials.
With the support of NASA, the lab of Federica Brandizzi has been studying how plants survive in space conditions. A new study starts revealing how a plant system – which helps plants manage various types of Earthly stresses, such as extreme heat – might function in space.
