Hans Kende Award Seminar (Dec 12): Dr. Marcelo Campos
December 12, 2016 @ 4:10 pm - 5:00 pm
Let us welcome back one of our TPC alumni, Dr. Marcelo Campos, as he delivers his Hans Kende Award Seminar on “Resolving Dilemmas: Uncoupling Plant Growth-Defense Tradeoffs.” Marcelo received his Ph.D. last year under Dr. Gregg Howe‘s supervision. With this award, Marcelo receives the distinction of having the best dissertation in the plant sciences for the past two years.
The award seminar is presented in honor of Dr. Hans Kende (1937-2006), who was one of the original PIs of the Plant Research Laboratory. Hans was recognized worldwide for his contribution to the understanding of plant hormone biosynthesis and the action of plant hormones in controlling plant growth and development. Hans was an excellent teacher and mentor for students and postdocs, and was particularly known for helping and promoting others.
