The 2018 Midwestern ASPB Meeting continues our tradition of presenting, discussing, and celebrating research pursuits from all areas of plant biology at Iowa State University.  We look forward to learning about novel efforts involving ecological restoration, educational tools and techniques, phytoremediation, hormonal signaling, global gene networks, biotechnological innovations, disease and stress tolerance, field crop breeding, space biology, and far more.

This meeting provides scientists at all career stages and diverse positions opportunities to discuss research efforts, teaching programs, administrative circumstances, funding scenarios, career designs, and other topics influencing the growth of plant biology.  It also serves as a superb networking opportunity for undergraduate researchers to make connections with potential graduate programs and advisors. For graduate students and post-doctoral research associates, the meeting promotes interactions with possible future post-doctoral advisors or employers in the private or public sector.

If you are interested in being considered for an oral presentation, please submit your abstract by February 1, 2018.

All abstracts submitted by February 25, 2018 will be accepted for poster presentations and included in the program book.
