Travel Award 2017
After a thorough assessment of all applications by the Evaluation Committee, we are pleased to announce that Dr. Heather E. McFarlane is the first winner of the Plants Travel Award 2017, and will receive 800 Swiss Francs towards her travel expenses to attend Plant Biology 2018 in Montreal, Canada.
Dr. Heather E. McFarlane received her Ph.D. at University of British Columbia in 2013 and is now an Early Career Fellow at University of Melbourne. Her research focuses on how the growing plant communicates with its cell wall to coordinate plant growth with cell wall synthesis and how the plant remodels its cell wall under changing environmental conditions.
We would like to congratulate her on her excellent work and would further like to thank all applicants for their interesting and high quality contributions. We also wish to thank the Scientific Committee members for their evaluation of the candidates.
Prof. Dr. Dilantha Fernando
