ategies to generate transgenic plants with novel mechanisms of pathogen resistance.

Bananas, for example, have been a target for that research because they are a staple food in several countries, he said.

"Banana is used in everything from bread to beer. As commercial bananas do not seed, breeding programs are generally ineffective. When diseases occur, starvation of the people dependent on them is likely."

Dickman previously was the Charles Bessey Professor at the University of Nebraska and had done post-doctoral research in Washington State University. A native of Long Island, N.Y., Dickman earned his bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees from the University of Hawaii.

He is a fellow of the American Phytopathological Society and has served the group as chair of the Biochemistry, Physiology, and Molecular Biology Committee and chair of the Scientific Program Board. He currently is senior editor for APS PRESS and a senior editor for Physiological and Molecular Plant Pathology.

Dickman has been honored as Distinguished Alumni Award from the University of Hawaii and received the University of Nebraska Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources Junior Faculty honor.
