Michelle R. Facette


2017 Women In STEM seed award winner


assistant professor in the Department of Biology

Winning project:

Development of Fluorescent Protein Marker Lines for Monitoring Cell Division in Maize.

Project focus:

Facette will further her work on the development of fluorescent protein marker lines for monitoring cell division in maize. Fluorescent proteins allow protein dynamics to be monitored prior to cell division.  This research will help to understand the critical development process through live cell imaging.
