Adventurous moving season into our new building

Dear Friends and Alumni!
Guess from where I am writing!  I am sitting in my beautiful new office in our gorgeous new building, the Advanced Teaching and Research Building, or ATRB. 
After years of planning and countless meetings, almost our whole department has packed up laboratories and offices and set up shop in the ATRB.  


PLPM department members attend international IPM symposium

Plant Pathology & Microbiology members recently attended the 8th International Integrated Pest Management Symposium in Salt Lake City, Utah.  The symposium focused on integrated pest management (IPM) solutions for a changing world.  IPM focuses on managing pests of food crops, ornamental plants, and indoor pests in a way that is sustainable, reduces unnecessary pesticides, and takes advantage of many tools to keep pests in check.
