The 2023 Joint MAS-ASPB and UMD Plant Symposium is an annual event that is co-organized by ASPB Mid-Atlantic Section and UMD. This 23rd annual meeting will be held at the University of Maryland, College Park on May 24-25, 2023 . The meeting has a tradition to showcase major plant research advances in the Mid-Atlantic region and beyond by supporting the participation of underrepresented minorities and junior scientists. This year will feature Keynote Speakers Alice Cheung (University of Massachusetts) and Henry Daniell (University of Pennsylvania). Besides the plenary sessions, two interesting workshops are planned, including ‘Career Development Workshop’ and ‘Grant Development Workshop’. We encourage the participation of young researchers (students, postdoctoral research associates and early career investigators). The organizing committee will select oral presentations from the submitted abstracts.
