Current Projects 

Many projects require the coordinated effort of individuals from different disciplines. The Plante lab is involved in several such projects. Collaborative projects are often among the most exciting research because those involved are exposed to new ideas, methods, and results that they would not have achieved on their own. Students benefit because their own research training is broadened by these cross-disciplinary interactions.
