THe MSU-DOE Plant Research Laboratory is a premier research institute embedded at Michigan State University and funded by the US Department of Energy and other funding bodies. Our mission is to discover how photosynthetic organisms work on the molecular level, in order, ultimately, to develop technologies that improve human lives.
What MSU-DOE Plant Research Laboratory Stands for
Many solutions for 21st century problems will come from photosynthetic organisms. We need to understand how their components work together and how they thrive in natural environments, so that we can harness them for sustainable applications.
PHOTOSYNTHESIS FOCUS Basic research on photosynthesis, metabolism, and defense; Creating new technologies targeting renewables, agriculture, and medical fields
TIGHT-KNIT COMMUNITY A friendly group of over 120 members; Internationally and culturally diverse
