On December 3rd, 2013, the American Society of Plant Biologists; the Alliance of Crop, Soil, and Environmental Science Societies; the American Chemical Society, and the National Plant Science Council, with in-kind support from the American Association for the Advancement of Science, co-hosted a community briefing on the report Unleashing a Decade of Innovation in Plant Science : A Vision for 2015-2025.




In the face of burgeoning global population growth and climate change, monumental advances in plant science research and technological innovation will be required to address the increasingly pressing demands on limited resources. The Decadal Vision is a community-driven report that articulates a path toward those monumental advances. The report describes a ten-year research agenda for plant science and its impacts on food, fuel, feed, fiber, pharmaceuticals, and American competitiveness.

The briefing was moderated by Sally MacKenzie, Ph.D., of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and speakers included:

· David Stern, Ph.D. - President, Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research (starts @ 3:30)

· Toni Kutchan, Ph.D. - Vice President for Research, Donald Danforth Plant Science Center (starts @ 18:00)

· Patrick Schnable, Ph.D. - Professor, Iowa State University (starts @ 36:20)

The briefing was attended by federal agency staff, congressional aides, members of the scientific and advocacy community, and the press.
