9th Annual Plant Sciences Symposium

The UW-Madison Plant Sciences Graduate Student Council hosted the 9th Annual Plant Sciences Symposium Symposium titled Plant Sciences: Evolving with the Times on Friday, November 15, 2019. The event was held in the H.F. Deluca Forum at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery at UW-Madison. The symposium featured talks from six accomplished and dynamic scientists, as well as graduate student lightning talks and a poster session.

Although the Plant Sciences Symposium is a student-run event, we would not be able to accomplish it without help from many others. Funding was graciously provided by Corteva Agriscience, Ball Horticultural Company, Valent U.S.A. Corporation, the Associated Students of Madison, the Wisconsin Experience Grant, the Wisconsin Agricultural and Life Sciences Alumni Association, the University Lectures Grant, and the UW-Madison College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. This symposium is part of the DowDuPont Plant Sciences Symposia Series, which includes plant sciences symposia at universities in six countries and five continents sponsored by Corteva Agriscience, the Agriculture Division of DowDuPont. We would also like to acknowledge the support of the faculty in our various departments. Lastly, we would like to extend our gratitude to Sarah Friedrich for her excellent work designing the symposium materials.
