The Agropolis Foundation Louis Malassis International Scientific Prize is awarded every 2 years and recognizes individuals for their “exemplary and promising contribution in promoting innovation through research, development and/or capacity building, in order to improve food and agricultural systems sustainability, as well as to address food security and poverty reduction.” 
Maria Harrison, William H. Crocker Professor at Boyce Thompson Institute, Adjunct Professor in the School of Integrative Plant Science (SIPS) at Cornell University, and IS-MPMI member, has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences.
The National Academy of Sciences recently honored Sharon Long, Stanford University, with the 2019 Selman A. Waksman Award, which recognizes a major advance in the field of microbiology. This award honors Sharon Long’s tremendous contributions to our understanding of the symbiotic interactions that lead to nitrogen-fixing legume root nodules.
May was Mental Health Awareness Month, so it's fitting that this issue of Interactions includes an article by UNC-Chapel Hill PhD candidate Susanna Harris that captures the struggles some student trainees have in the lab. The article is aimed primarily at principal investigators and provides valuable suggestions to help support a mentally healthy work environment.
The MPMI journal editorial board has planned a new way to engage our community with the "Top 10 Questions in MPMI." The idea is to brainstorm as a community to identify the top 10 unanswered questions in MPMI. As we come together in Glasgow next month at the IC-MPMI to share ideas and findings, it makes sense to take advantage of the diversity of people and research subjects to identify and focus these questions. Join the conversation!
