Plant Science Program HHMI-GBMF Investigator
Plants are intertwined with our lives—sustaining us with food, shelter, and oxygen and nurturing us with shade and beauty. Biologically speaking, we are made of the same stuff; in many ways, the better we understand plants, the better we understand ourselves.
In recognition of the critical importance of plant science, in 2011, HHMI partnered with the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation (GBMF) to name 15 innovative plant biologists as the first HHMI-GBMF investigators.
