Kudos to all the Plant Pathology and Environmental Microbiology graduate students and faculty who represented the Department while participating in the 2014 Graduate Research Exhibition held Sunday, April 6, 2014 at the HUB-Robeson Center.  The Annual Graduate Research Exhibition was started in 1986 and this year had over 300 presentations. The purpose of The Graduate Exhibition is to offer a special professional development opportunity for students to communicate research and creative endeavors to a general audience, which challenges graduate students to present their work in clear, comprehensible terms to people outside their fields of study.

We would like to acknowledge this year's PPEM graduate student exhibitors, who all did a wonderful job:
