About Us

The Translational Plant Scientists at Virginia Tech welcome you. A group of more than twenty faculty and many more students in seven departments in the Colleges of Agriculture, Science, and Natural Resources, the program uses molecular approaches to understand how plants grow and interact with their environments.

The diversity in the TPS program is evident by looking at the federal agencies that fund them: National Science Foundation, United States Department of Agriculture, Department of Energy, and National Institute of Health. Moreover, many laboratories are also supported by various Virginia and US grower organizations and industry.
