Heat stress can compromise plant resistance to insects, but the mechanism of the heat stress-induced loss of host plants remains largely unknown. Overwhelming evidence have indicated that phytohormones salicylic acid (SA), jasmonic acid (JA), 12-oxo-phytodienoic acid (OPDA), and auxin play critical roles in plants' response to biotic and abiotic stresses.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) selects Fayetteville State University as one of its "Path to Excellence and Innovation" Cohorts.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is the largest biomedical research organization in the world, and its 27 institutes and centers annually obligate approximately $6 billion in contract awards to support the NIH mission. Path to Excellence and Innovation (PEI) is a high-level road map for getting Historically Black Colleges and Universities a seat at the table for more NIH contract awards. The NIH Office of Acquisition and Logistics Management (OALM) established the PEI as a comprehensive program to accomplish the goals prescribed in Presidential Executive Order (EO) 13779, the White House's initiative to promote excellence and innovation at HBCUs.
