Welcome to the Center for Plant Lipid Research!
The Center for Plant Lipid Research is a group of laboratories. Dr. Kent Chapman serves as center director and helps to coordinate these diverse research activities focusing on basic and applied aspects of research in the regulation of plant lipid metabolism.
Center scientists are seeking to understand through contemporary cellular, biochemical, and molecular genetic approaches how lipids influence the growth and development of plants. Efforts also contribute to the discovery of new products and uses for plant derived lipids and their potential public benefit.
The center provides training opportunities for undergraduates and graduate students in molecular biology, biology, and biochemistry. Please follow the link on this page to opportunities.
