- 1. [LINK] Brandizzi lab to study the effect of space flight on seeds
The goal is to help increase the nutritional value of plants grown in spaceflight. The seeds will be on NASA's Orion spacecraft, on its maiden voyage to the moon and back.

- 2. New insights into plant cell organelle and molecule movement
New research reveals a protein, TGNap1, that supports the poorly-understood Trans-Golgi Network in structure, function, and motion. The study also provides evidence for microtubule-driven organelle movement, a new line of thought in plant science.

- 3. [LINK] How do you grow plants in space? Michigan State researchers are on the case
A Lansing State Journal story features Dr. Brandizzi, Evan Angelos, a fourth-year doctoral student, Starla Zemelis-Durfee, Brandizzi lab manager, and their research on how plants grow in and respond to stressful environments.

- 4. [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.

- 5. 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.'

- 6. 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.

- 7. 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.
