Harrison-and-students It could be said that Marshall University’s Dr. Marcia Harrison digs a little deeper. Harrison is a professor in Marshall’s Department of Biological Sciences, and she keeps a close watch on exactly how plants grow.

Harrison said, “When plants fall down they can’t get up – at least not right away.”

Harrison’s research career has revolved around how plants respond to gravity and interaction of other factors – including space.

Read more about Harrison’s research in the Fall 2014 edition of The Neuron.
