MPS Seminars

The MPS program sponsors a Monday seminar series, hosting visiting scientists with research on timely molecular plant sciences topics. While at MSU, the visiting scientists also visit MPS labs to speak with the students, postdocs, and faculty in an informal setting. Our affiliated departments and programs also host their own talks. See below for links.
