  • According to Dr. Roeder, the next 100 years of plant biology are difficult to predict, as she expects unimaginable advancements to take place in the field. Read: The Cornell Daily Sun/A History of Science: One Hundred Years Of Plant Biology. Sept.4, 2013
  • Congratulations to Heather Meyer for passing her A exam July 12, 2013!
  • Adrienne Roeder and collaborators Arezki Boudaoud, Richard Smith and Chin Biu Li were awarded a 3-year grant from the Human Frontiers in Science Program for the study "From stochastic cell behavior to reproducible shapes: the coordination behind morphogenesis." Work on the study will begin September 1, 2013.
  • Effective January 15, 2013, Adrienne Roeder was awarded a 3-year grant from NSF's Division of Integrative Organismal Systems to study the "Feedback of cell cycle on cell type in Arabidopsis organogenesis."
  • Congratulations to Xian Qu for passing his A exam October 2, 2012!
