Researcher Looks to Plants in Search for New Antibiotics
Dr. Cassandra Quave’s path to her work as a leader in antibiotic drug discovery research initiatives at Emory University in Atlanta started when she...
Whoa! Super #fungi in #space might help block harmful #radiation... by "eating" the radiation for energy. Take that gamma rays!
Chernobyl fungus could shield astronauts from cosmic radiation
A recent study tested how well the fungi species Cladosporium sphaerospermum blocked cosmic radiation aboard the International Space Station.
In that magical period between winter & spring in the NE US & Canada, tapped sugar maples yield buckets of clear sap. Once concentrated, the resulting sticky syrup is used as a natural sweetener for everything from breakfast treats to specialty cocktails.

“Sharing both successes and failures helps scientists avoid repeating failed studies,” @QuaveEthnobot says of the important role data sharing plays in the fight against #antibioticresistance.
Scott taught me so much about plants in grad school! He's a pro!
This is a great opportunity for folks to learn more about those pretty plants found in your homes and offices! 🌿🤩
I'm thrilled to announce I'm teaching a 2nd round of The #Botany of #Houseplants, a 4-session webinar course starting Feb 6, 2021 at 8pm Eastern (better time for folks in Asia & Pacific). It will cover lots of cool topics. US$25. Course schedule is here: https://t.co/OeQLZHbajt
NEW ARTICLE PUBLISHED!
In ethnopharmacological research, existing field assessment tools miss that critical point of how to really determine which species merit the costly lab studies. This gap can be filled by the Degrees of Publication (DoP) method.

SPARK Receives New Data from Merck and Kyorin
“I want the broader #antibiotic discovery community to benefit from this work, not spend another year re-creating it,” @QuaveEthnobot says of her decision to share data from her team’s latest research with @pewhealth’s SPARK.
I love articles of a historical perspective like this. Thank you Dr. Kingston for your contributions to the natural product sciences.
Check out this great #prosthetic cover (@alleles) that one of our Atlanta patients @QuaveEthnobot chose, as a way to express herself.
It’s beautiful, Dr. Quave!
