Call for Abstracts 
Dear Graduate Students, Faculty, and Staff, 
We invite you to participate in the 13th annual Plant Science Graduate Student Research Symposium on Tuesday, March 24, 2015.
It is our hope that this event will allow students, faculty, and staff to learn more about the research that is conducted in the plant science departments at MSU. We view this as a great opportunity to exchange research ideas, polish presentation techniques, and make and renew friendships as well as receive valuable feedback from respected and expert faculty. 
Authors may present research in a poster or oral session.  The deadline for abstract submission is 5:00 p.m. on Friday, March 13, 2015. We encourage students to share research which they have presented recently at academic meetings, intend to present in the near future, or share their general research interests. Monetary prizes will be awarded to top presenters, and participants may elect to receive written feedback from a faculty panel.

The oral session(s) will be held in A271 PSSB and A279 starting at 1 p.m. Refreshments will be available, and lunch will be provided from 12p.m. to 1 p.m.
