New high-tech greenhouse facility opens to researchers

Ribbon cutting ceremony celebrates new Plant Research 1 building

CEPCEB Director, Professor Julia Bailey-Serres was featured in an Inside UCR story about the opening of the new Plant Research 1 building. 

From the original Inside UCR article, published May 9, 2023 by Imran Ghori:

"'This greenhouse gives us a much higher control in terms of temperature, humidity, and light,” said Bailey-Serres, a distinguished professor of genetics and director of the Center for Plant Cell Biology. “We have this incredible ability to grow all year round.'

Her team of 10 undergraduates, graduate students, and post-doctoral researchers began moving into the new laboratory space last summer where they’re better able to conduct research into how rice plants deal with extreme flooding and drought."
