ICAR 2017 (June 23): Sheng Yang He – Keynote lecture 4
June 23, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Come hear TPC PI, Sheng Yang He, deliver a keynote talk about “Toward understanding “disease-climate-microbiome” triangles in the phyllosphere.”
ICAR presents him: “Sheng Yang He is an HHMI-GBMF Investigator and a University Distinguished Professor at Michigan State University. His lab studies the Arabidopsis thaliana-Pseudomonas syringae interaction, with the long-term goal of discovering basic principles that govern bacterial pathogenesis and disease susceptibility in plants. His lab also uses microbial pathogenesis as a probe to gain insights into important cellular processes involved in plant-microbe interactions, including immune modulation, jasmonate signaling and stomatal defense. Recent research in his lab begins to shed light on how climate conditions and phyllosphere microbiota might influence disease development. Dr. He received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Zhejiang (Agricultural) University, China, and a PhD degree from Cornell University, USA. He is a Past-President of the International Society of Molecular Plant-Microbe Interactions, a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and a member of the US National Academy of Sciences.”
