  • Since 2012, we have organized an annual "plant cell dynamics" meeting with the objective of bringing together plant cell biologists from around the world in a highly interactive forum for presenting the latest advances in plant cell biology and for learning new tools and approaches.

    The 2018 program includes:
    • Keynote talks
    • Adrienne Roeder, Cornell University
    • Mike Blatt, Glasgow University
    • Oral presentations from the members of the attending labs with an emphasis towards beginning faculty, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students
    • Extensive poster sessions
    • Practical Workshops - Larry Griffing, Texas A&M -'Quantifying ER dynamics'
    • Plenty of time for informal discussions
    • Check out the last year's program to see what the meeting will be like
    • One poster figure gets voted on to be next year's conference T-shirt design. The winner for the 2018 meeting design is Kaija Goodman from UW-Madison.
    • t-shirt
      The 2018 T-shirt image is from Kaija Goodman (UW-Madison).

    A favorite is always the amazing food (and drinks) at every poster social, plus the end of meeting party at the Pyle Center on the shores of lake Mendota

    The meeting is open to all irrespective of where you are located. The MidWest in our name - well the meeting is organized by a bunch of plant cell biologists who just happen to all live in the MidWest of the USA.......

    If you haven't attended a meeting where the talks that run over time get faded out to the tune of "Let it Go" from Disney's Frozen...Or David Coverdale singing "Here I go Again" then you need to talk to one of the meeting participants!
