Dr. Sheng Yang He received his Ph.D. from Cornell University in 1991. He was appointed as an Assistant Professor at the University of Kentucky in 1993, and joined the faculty of Michigan State University (MSU) in 1995. He currently holds faculty appointments in MSU-DOE Plant Research Laboratory, Department of Plant Biology, Department of Microbiology and Molecular Biology, Department of Plant, Soil and Microbial Sciences and Plant Resilience Institute at MSU and is an Investigator at Howard Hughes Medical Institute. He is a member of MSU’s Plant Biology Graduate Program, Genetics Graduate Program, Cell & Molecular Graduate Program and Molecular Plant Science Graduate Program. His laboratory studies molecular bases of plant-pathogen and plant-microbiota interactions. Research projects aim to discover basic principles underlying microbial pathogenesis, plant immunity, jasmonate signaling, phyllosphere microbiota, and climate impact on plant-microbe interactions. Dr. He is a recipient of Valent BioSciences Young Scientist Award from the Plant Growth Regulation Society of America, a Past-President of the International Society of Molecular Plant-Microbe Interactions, a University Distinguished Professor at MSU, a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and a member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences.
