Hello ASPS members,
ComBio2018 will mark the 60th anniversary of our society and is a great opportunity for the next generation of plant scientists to share their research and passion for plants with our community. As a society we provide travel grants to support our student members to attend ComBio. If you are a student attending ComBio or the supervisor of a student attending ComBio this year apply for a travel grant by COB June 15th 2018.
