I am responsible for the administration of CAPS (Center for Applied Plant Sciences) including the Translational Plant Sciences Graduate Program and the new International Dual PhD Degree Program.
Through Industry - Academia - Education partnerships, both the industry and the university can not only share their vast knowledge and current research, but help to inspire and shape the young scientific minds of the future.
We love turning kids on to the plant sciences. Depending on the students’ age, CAPS can arrange center tours, provide hands-on experiments, Skype classrooms, provide career panel assistance, put together panels with undergraduate and graduate students, provide presentations, and much, much more.
We can provide custom support for teachers looking to incorporate hands-on experiences within the plant sciences into their classrooms.
