Our Research

At PRI, we perform ground-breaking laboratory and field research on plant resilience, improving the productivity and nutritional quality of plants. We are addressing the challenges that climate change poses to food production and crop resilience.

As a Center of Excellence, we connect leading plant researchers and eminent interdisciplinary labs to drive unique solutions to questions in plant research. PRI is where future leaders of plant research are trained. These leaders will advance, advocate for, and prioritize the importance of plant resiliency in our society and the environment.

By focusing on convergent science, we provide the resources and the platform for groundbreaking collaborations. PRI faculty come from departments aross Michigan State University, including:

Microbiology, Genetics, & Immunology (MGI), Plant, Soil, and Microbiology (PSM), Biochemistry & Molecular Biology (BMB), Horticulture (HORT), Plant Biology (PLB), and the W.K. Kellogg Biological Station (KBS).
