Greetings from MSU!


Plant Scientist David Sands wins major grant for work in Africa. The Gates foundation has awarded David Sands, a professor in the Department of Plant Sciences and Plant Pathology at MSU, a $100,000 grant to enhance his Striga research in Kenya. Sands research has developed a fungus that helps fight the parasite Striga, enabling Kenyan woman to grow more corn more effectively. “If they can’t produce corn, they starve,” Sands said.
