Plant Sciences 2.0
By investing in plant sciences, we will equip researchers, students, entrepreneurs and the ag biotech industry to work together to feed the world’s population and strengthen our ecosystems.
Humanity faces growing challenges related to food security, nutrition and the environment — each amplified by climate change.
Purdue will develop strategies to support economic and ecological sustainability — including tools to increase the nutritional value and resilience of plants faced with a changing environment.
We will focus on digital forestry, phenotyping facilities and data scientists, as well as the Center for Food Demand Analysis and Sustainability.
Our world-changing research will benefit consumers, producers and industry as we form partnerships across the university and the ag bioscience industry.
Key Initial Investments
- Innovation in plant sciences research and data science
- Center for Food Demand Analysis and Sustainability
- Ag-Celerator impact fund
