Australian Society for Plant Scientists Goldacre Award

31 March 2008

The 2007 Goldacre medal, which is awarded yearly to an early career researcher in plant science, was awarded to Ulrike Mathesius during the annual ComBio Conference in Sydney, accompanied by a lecture about Ulrike's work on the molecular signals that control root-microbe interactions. This award was established in 1965 in recognition of the plant physiologist Peter Goldacre, and as an encouragement for young researchers.
