The 2022 Joint MAS-ASPB and UMD Plant Symposium is an annual event that is co-organized by ASPB Mid-Atlantic Section and UMD. This 22nd annual meeting will be held at the University of Maryland, College Park. 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. The program will cover a range of topics, including but not limited to Plant growth and development, plant biotic and abiotic interactions, plant molecular and cell biology, plant genetics and genomics, plant evolution and ecology, and plant biotechnology. This year will feature Keynote Speaker, Dr. Ueli Grossniklaus at the University of Zurich, Switzerland. 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. All abstracts submitted on or before May 10, 2022 will be considered for a talk. Abstracts submitted on or before May 10, 2022 will be accepted for poster presentations and will be included in the program book.
