Nov 19, 2014

Curator of the Living Plant Collection Tobias Baskin has been awarded a Marie Curie International Incoming Fellowship from the European Union to support his sabbatical leave at the Centre for Plant Integrative Biology at the University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom for the 2014-15 academic year.

The fellowships support mid-career and senior scientists doing research within the EU and are highly competitive. Baskin will investigate the cellular dynamics of root growth, taking advantage of advanced microscopes and the centre's expertise in computer vision.
