The Plant Cell Institute strives to strengthen the extraordinary plant research conducted across the globe.
100% of the world’s population depends on plants
The future of humanity depends on plants and they are threatened, more than ever, by the sheer speed of change across ecosystems. We support unprecedented cross-discipline cooperation to tackle complex plant-related issues facing the world’s population. We collaborate with existing labs, and researchers work through a dedicated virtual platform. Our innovative distributed approach intends to translate research into real-world impact.

It’s the start of a transformation in research. Find out about our vision of collaborative research.
Our societies are increasingly confronted with global threats impacting climate, food security and population health. Plants are essentials to communities globally, and a greater understanding of their fundamental biological mechanisms is needed to face these major problems. Plant research institutions across the globe have contributed to many innovations and discoveries. However, collaborative approaches must happen to tackle these complex problems. We believe that solutions are best identified through collaboration.
We believe successful distributed research can be achieved by supporting a strong network of labs with diverse expertise.
