The Interdisciplinary Plant Group Fund for Transformative Ideas

The Interdisciplinary Plant Group (IPG) is a community of MU faculty, students, postdoctoral fellows, and professionals who are pursuing novel, creative, and transformative ideas in the field of plant biology. Established in 1981, the IPG seeks to encourage interdisciplinary cooperation between scientists engaged in research in plant molecular biology, physiology, biochemistry, genetics, biotechnology, evolution, ecology, bioinformatics, and computer science. On May 24th, 2022, we kick off our 38th annual Symposium and established this Give Direct fund in an effort to fund an endowment by our 50th year symposium. The fund will support our mission to continue research that transcends traditional departmental boundaries.
