Lee-Parsons Selected as NEASPB Keynote Speaker

ChE Associate Professor Carolyn W.T. Lee-Parsons gave the keynote speech on "Engineering the Production of Medicinal Natural Products from Plant Tissue Culture" at the Interdisciplinary Plant Science Symposium at the Northeast Regional American Society of Plant Biology Meeting. Her research focuses on the production of valuable pharmaceutical compounds from plant cell cultures, specifically the production of important anti-cancer drug molecules from cell cultures of Catharanthus roseus. The meeting provided scientists with an opportunity to discuss research efforts, teaching programs, administrative circumstances, funding scenarios, career designs, and other topics influencing plant biology.
