CPSC goes to Finland

For the past days more than 20 Copenhagen Plant Science Centre researchers have joined their colleagues from other Nordic universities at the anual SPPS Congress. The Nordic Plant Biology Days 2017 is the 27th SPPS Congress and is held in Naantali, Finland.

There has been lots of exiting plant science talks, excellent posters, mingling with colleagues and beautiful, Finnish nature during the 3 days of the congress.

There were also prizes to give out and among the recipients were a number of happy CPSC scientists: Professor Michael Palmgren was among the SPPS award winners and gave a talk on Pumping up plants with P-type ATPases. Postdocs Anurag Sharma and Verena Jeschke received prizes for best posters, which had been voted on by the congress participants.

Among the speakers at the congress were Professor Poul Erik Jensen and Associate Professor Stephan Wenkel. Postdoc Julie Zedler and PhD Omar Sandoval-Ibánez gave short 7 minute flash presentations and a number of the other CPSC researchers presented their work on posters.

In the evenings there was time to enjoy the beautiful surroundings in Finland. Among other things a boat trip to the Pikku-Pukki Island had been organized Thursday evening.
