Our society depends on plants. Experimental Plant Sciences study the fundamental life processes of plants at different organizational levels, from molecules and cells to whole plants and ecosystems. The goal of these studies is to understand how plants develop and how they function in, and adapt to, continuously changing and often hostile environments.
In this summer school, an attractive program is provided in which experts in the field will highlight different aspects of environmental signaling in plants. Additional speakers will be selected from submitted abstracts. Moreover, there will be ample opportunity for discussions during the poster viewing sessions.
The 10th International Utrecht PhD Summer School on Environmental Signaling PhD Summer School offers an attractive program with many expert speakers in the field of environmental signaling in plants. In addition to the invited speakers, there are 3 parallel sessions in the program for oral presentations by PhD students that will be selected from submitted abstracts. Moreover, there will be ample opportunity for discussions with speakers and fellow PhD students during breaks/lunch and the poster viewing session. The meeting is especially attractive for PhD students, but the program will also be of interest to post-docs and senior scientists. The summer school is truly international; in past years it has attracted students from many European countries and even from outside Europe. We hope to see you this summer in the beautiful and lively historic city of Utrecht!
