Please join me in congratulating Chan Ho on winning the 2009 CC Allison award this year! The award goes to an outstanding graduate student in their final year or two of study towards the Ph.D. It is awarded to a student who shows an excellent balance of academic progress (coursework and research) and service to the department and plant pathology community.
Congratulations to Dr. Miguel Vega-Sanchez for winning the William E. Krauss Award in recognizing the impact of his SPIN1 Plant Cell paper. This award will be presented at the OARDC Annual Research Conference at The Blackwell in Columbus on April 23, 2009.
