Plant Biology at Cornell University

Ithaca, New York - United States

The Department of Plant Biology is home to the Basic Plant Sciences on campus. The Department has 31 Faculty including members from other Cornell Departments, the USDA Plant, Soil & Nutrition Laboratory and The Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research. Research in the Department is also supported by some 24 postdoctoral fellows and research associates. In addition, the Department of Plant Biology administers the Graduate Field of Plant Biology, a successful interdisciplinary Ph.D. training program that produces some of the top leaders in Plant Biology Research & Education.

Mission : Today's World brings an unprecedented series of challenges. We are faced with global climate change and its implications for agriculture and the extinction of wild species, energy shortages, and new epidemic diseases. Research in the basic plant sciences is potentially of great significance in addressing aspects of each of these phenomena. The Department of Plant Biology at Cornell University is unusually positioned to contribute solutions to these problems through its broad based and innovative studies of basic plant biology.
