experience
Rebecca Grumet
Dr. Rebecca Grumet
Grumet, a professor in the Department of Horticulture
at Michigan State University (MSU) since 1987, is retiring
after a successful career. She specialized in reproductive
development in cucumbers and melons, regulation
of sex-expression, disease resistance, biotechnology
biosafety and cucurbit genomics.
" I'm kind of a data junkie, " Grumet said in a video
before accepting the award. " I love doing experiments
and looking at experiments and I've had wonderful
people - graduate students, post-docs, visiting
scientists - over the years, working in the lab. "
Grumet's lab recently focused on fruit development
and disease resistance in Cucumis (cucumber and
melon) crops using molecular genetic, genomic and
transgenic approaches. This centered on early stages
of fruit growth and factors influencing fruit size,
shape, cuticle and surface properties and resistance to
phytophthora capsici.
Grumet thanked the Michigan pickle industry, which
contacted her for help on diseases early in her MSU
career, and her lab has worked with that industry over
the years.
In the video, Katie Hensley, chief financial officer at
Ravenna, Michigan-based Swanson Pickle Co., said
she represents the third generation of her family that's
worked with Grumet. Hensley said Grumet's work on
phytophthora is important.
" It's not only impacting individual farms like our
own, but also more broadly, all of the seed companies
work with her program, " Hensley said.
