A professor at Michigan State University (MSU) and a leading MSU AgBioResearch plant scientist has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences.

Sheng-Yang He, a MSU Distinguished Professor in the MSU-DOE Plant Research Laboratory, Department of Plant Biology, Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics, and Department of Plant, Soil and Microbial Sciences, was selected as part of the 2015 class. He earned the honor for his seminal contributions to the understanding of plant-pathogen interactions.

“I am extremely honored to receive this recognition and am greatly indebted to my former and current lab members and collaborators for their memorable contributions,” He said. “MSU provides a great environment for pursuing a dream career that I could not have imagined when I was growing up in a small village in China.”
