- 2017 William H. Danforth Plant Science Scholar Recipient
- The Fellowship enables talented young scientists to pursue careers in this critically important field.
- 2017 William H. Danforth Plant Science Scholar Recipient , Adam Bray, a second-year Ph.D. student at the University of Missouri, has been named the 2017 William H. Danforth Plant Science Scholar. He, whose research demonstrates great promise for advancing plant science. The fellowship was endowed, for scientific medical research and education. Bray’s passion for plant science began while growing up, for plant phenotyping at the University of Georgia, which led him to the lab of Christopher Topp, Ph.D.

- Understanding Root Growth and Physiology, What is the genetic basis of root system architecture (RSA)?
‘Root system architecture’ encompasses the spatial and temporal organization of roots in the growth medium, and thus greatly influences the resource capturing abilities of a plant. However, root architecture traits are notoriously difficult to measure due to the opacity of soil and a complex morphology that is environmentally sensitive. Christopher Topp’s laboratory at the Danforth Plant
