Biology Department Chair's Research Featured on UNCG Website

Dr. Stan Faeth's research was recently featured on the UNCG news website. He and UNCG Chemistry Professor, Dr. Nadja Cech, are currently working on 'sleepy grass,' a native New Mexico and Arizona grass that is infected with a fungal endophyte that produces alkaloids that can cause livestock to become paralyzed. They hope to expand this research to include other medicinal plants that may be bioengineered for benefitial use.
