Joanne Chory has spent more than 10,000 days at the Salk using Arabidopsis thaliana as a model for plant growth. The Chory lab has pioneered the use of molecular genetics to study how plants respond to their environment and has made major discoveries surrounding how plants sense light and make growth hormones. In addition to her many accomplishments, Joanne has had the honor and privilege of mentoring over 100 graduate students and postdocs. With gratitude to the Salk Institute, it is now our time to honor Joanne.

Please join us in A Celebration of 10,000 Days of the Chory Lab with an all day symposium here at Salk on Friday, March 11th. The symposium will feature past and present lab members highlighting their work while in the Chory lab and the future directions this work led them to in their own careers.

It wouldn’t be a Celebration without you!
