This will be revolutionary. If CryoEM structural analysis can become as readily available as NMR my job would be VERY different but open up AMAZING opportunities!!! #science #naturalproducts
Another reason plants are cool - physics!!
Dandelion seeds fly using ‘impossible’ method never before seen in nature
Dandelion seeds fly using ‘impossible’ method never before seen in nature
The seeds contain a lot of open space, which seems to be the key to sustaining flight.
Hey #emory #derm! Look at who I found at the Integrative Dermatology Symposium! Always fun to catch up with former #dermatology residents!

âHyperalarmingâ study shows massive insect loss
Insects are vanishing even in a pristine tropical forest, and an ecologist calls this "one of the most disturbing articles I have ever read.”
I have an interview with the @TEDFellow program later today! Eeep! I'm fresh back from my last field expedition & have lots of cool science & personal stories to share. Really hoping this goes well b/c I'd love to get involved with their program! #excited #nervous #wishmeluck !!!
Back in the office today! Thanks to the #QuaveLab team for keeping my plants 🌱 alive while I was in the field! There’s just something nice about having these nearby while working - adds some cheer to the environment. #officedecor #officeplants
It will take 3 to 7 million years for mammals to recover the evolutionary diversity that humans have destroyed. That’s more than 10x longer than our species has existed for. Grim estimates from a new study:
It Will Take Millions of Years for Mammals to Recover From Us
In less than 130,000 years, humans have sawed off the most evolutionarily distinct branches from our family tree.

The botany of taste!! What an aroma! Join us from Parco della Favorita in #Palermo #Sicily to learn about a local Sicilian liqueur made with the rind of green mandarins: Mandarinetto! #localfood #citrus #Beverages #mandarin #rutaceae #ethnobotany @MariaFadiman @Ethnobotanica
A little rain can’t keep us from botanizing! We’re having a great time exploring the botanical bounty of #Palermo! Check out these lovely green #mandarin 🍊 oranges! Just the right time to harvest for making a special local #liqueur “mandarinetto”! #ethnobotany #sicily
We’re at Mondello beach and came across these cool sea plants! Tune in to learn about Posedonia oceanica - a flowering monocot that grows in underwater meadows in the Mediterranean Sea! #palermo #posedonia #sicily #botany #marineecology @MariaFadiman @Ethnobotanica
Mirto! This beautiful #Myrtus spp. gave us a showy display of bright purple fruits - packed with anthocyanins! @Ethnobotanica made a fantastic white wine infusion of crushed fruits & island herbs in her creation of a Marettimo #negroni #botanical #cocktail @MariaFadiman
Saying goodbye is hard to do! Thanks so much to the people of #Marettimo for their incredible hospitality! We had a fabulous time exploring the fall flora. I’m looking forward to returning soon to share the study results with the community! #expeditionegadi #ethnobotany #sicily
I’m entranced by the gorgeous flowers and smell of the wild rosemary covering the island! So lovely 😊 Rosmarinus officinalis, Lamiaceae
#explore #expeditionegadi #aegadianislands #naturesbeauty #flowersofinstagram #rosemary
Erica multiflora, Ericaceae - aka heather - is blooming across the island! So beautiful 😍 and a great 🐝 plant for delicious 🍯 honey!

The roots of one particular tomato plant have been found to release compounds that encourage bacteria growth in soil
Some plants nurture soil bacteria that keep them healthy
That knowledge may be useful to farmers
The #truth about fieldwork... Morning versus evening 🤣
So thankful for the opportunity to work with these amazing #womeninscience (@Ethnobotanica & @MariaFadiman) It’s such fun to do #fieldwork with other #ethnobotanists - there’s always something new that we learn from each other. #inspiringwomen #ethnobotany #research #Sicily
Prepping the last plant press for transport back home! So excited to share all of these cool species & plant stories with my students in class, #QuaveLab & @EmoryHerbarium !#expeditionegadi #herbaria #iamabotanist #botany #ethnobotany
Well done Dr. Burdette & Dr. Sanchez (@DrLauraSanchez) on this important & exciting work!
Ovarian or fallopian tube cancer? Two @UICPharm @thisisUIC scientists with links to CBC, Joanna Burdette and @DrLauraSanchez, collaborate to decipher the origin and the mechanism of spread of ovarian cancer. Congrats & thanks for acknowledging CBC funding!
We’re nearing the end of #ExpeditionEgadi & are prepping samples with @Ethnobotanica & @MariaFadiman for transport back to #QuaveLab @EmoryUniversity. These will be subjected to chemical & biological activity analyses in #drugdiscovery for #AntibioticResistance & #cancer targets.
Punica granatum, Lythraceae - remember this name! Pomengranates are a real jewel of the Mediterranean! We enjoyed a delicious glass of fresh squeezed, antioxidant-packed juice! 😋 yummy!

Antibiotics May Soon Become Useless. Now What?
Antibiotics were one of the great innovations of the last century. Will we still use them 25 years from now?
