We are proud to share that Professor Michelle Momany was elected as a Fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology! This is a well-deserved honor for a highly valued University of Georgia and Department of Plant Biology colleague.

We want to take a moment to thank Chelsea Hargrove! Chelsea is stepping away from PBIO after nine years of service. Chelsea wore multiple hats in the Department; she was the admissions counselor, assistant to the graduate coordinator, and assistant to the undergraduate coordinator.

Congratulations to Emily Yaklich, Emma Chandler, Em Horne and Anna Wyngaarden, a.k.a. the Running Monsteras relay team for their successful marathon finish at the Inaugural Classic City Marathon on January 28! 

We hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful and restful holiday season. As we start into this new year, we hope you are energized and ready for the semester ahead! The Plant Biology Department is geared up for another semester of hands-on learning and innovative research.

Holiday greetings from PBIO! This is our entry in the annual Miller Plant Sciences Holiday Door Decorating Contest. If you zoom in, you’ll see the names of everyone in the department inscribed on the bracts.
