Our review on the coral microbiome published last year is the winner of best paper of 2023 in FEMS Microbiology Reviews, along with a prize of €1000.
Our newest paper on the molecular mechanisms of how the diatom metabolite azelaic acid regulates different microbial populations is out in eLife.
Lisa, Fei and Shady coauthored a new paper that identifies a new genus and species of bacteria symbiotic with diatoms and adept at utilizing diatom-derived azelaic acid as a carbon source in the International Journal of Systematics and Evolutionary Microbiolgy.
Shady was recently interviewed by The National newspaper and by the radio show The Agenda on Dubai Eye on October 10, 2023, to address the ongoing algal bloom happening at Yas Bay and neighboring residential neighborhood.
Shady has been nominated to the membership of the Committee on Climate Change for ISME. The committee will oversee lobbying efforts for more focus on microbes and their role and adaptation in climate change in global events, such as COP.
Our review on the coral microbiome has been selected as an Editor's Choice review, highlighting its impact.
Shady's editorial on the microbial ecology of the Arabian/Persian gulf is out in Frontiers in Marine Science. Check out also the full Research Topic with exciting research from one of the least studied seas on the planet.
Fei has received a travel award to attend ASLO in Mallorca, Spain, from the Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs Office at NYUAD.
