Plant Institute

Promoting interdisciplinary collaboration and innovation in all aspects of plant-based scientific investigation


The Plant Institute connects researchers from diverse fields to study all aspects of plants: from their evolutionary histories, genetics, and physical structures to the other organisms that interact with them, on scales ranging from the molecular to global.


Our approach consciously encourages cross-disciplinary efforts to conduct innovative, groundbreaking research and prepares future scientists to investigate the most important questions facing a changing planet.
