Congratulations to Benjamin Chadwick, Ph.D. candidate in the Lin Lab, for winning the department’s Graduate student Paper-of-the Year award for 2022.

In Honor of Black History Month we are celebrating scientists whose work contributed to the foundation of Plant biology and the diverse research conducted in our department. 

A big WELCOME to our new PhD students from the Integrated Plant Sciences (IPS) and Integrated Life Sciences (ILS) programs, who will join labs in Plant Biology.  

This year’s new students include:  

Emma Chandler - DeMarche lab 

Congratulations to Peggy Brickman, Meigs Professor in the Department of Plant Biology!

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Russell Malmberg (1952-2023). Our thoughts are with his wife Donna Carney and his family. Russell was a UGA University Professor and an integral part of the Department and a loved colleague.
