15th Annual Symposium in Plant Biology

Save the Date - Saturday, October 14, 2017
'Capturing the dynamic architecture of cells: Honoring the

The symposium is an initiative of the PB Program that is designed to highlight an exciting area of plant biology by featuring a daylong program of speakers, along with a poster session for attendees from any institution to share their research.  This year's organizing committee is: Tobias Baskin, Magdalena Bezanilla, Masoud Hashemi, Marco Keiluweit, Klaus Nusslein, and Dong Wang.

Registration for this free event will be available online later this spring and more details will be posted soon.  We hope you will save the date, Saturday, October 14th, and join us for this exciting symposium!
