The work of Mary Lou Guerinot and her colleagues in unraveling how plants accumulate iron and respond to its deficiency was featured in an article in the Valley News (https://www.vnews.com/Dartmouth-Researchers-Find-Gene-Key-to-Regulating-Iron-Absorption-in-Plants-31219089). This news article was inspired by research recently published by Guerinot and her team in the scientific journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA. Professor Mary Lou Guerinot is an elected member of the National Academy of Sciences and, because this was her inaugural article as a member, the journal also published a profile of her scientific work and career. You can read Professor Guerinot’s research article here (https://www.pnas.org/content/116/50/24933) and her profile here (https://www.pnas.org/content/early/2020/01/07/1921933117.short?rss=1).
