Fascination of Plants Day 2017

 

The Shanghai Center for Plant Stress Biology joined the initiative of the Fascination of Plants Day (http://fascinationofplantsday.org). This initiative has the goal of engaging the society on the excitement of research in Plant Biology.

 

Tamara and Laura, from our neighboring MPVI lab, organized several events, including experiments performed by Primary School children, and several other lab members participated in the events. The children enjoyed a day of doing experiments in the lab, including their own extraction of plant DNA, and showed great enthusiasm for lab work.

New Year Gala and Happy Hour

After the first day of our annual retreat, the PSC students, postdocs, staff members and faculty celebrated the Chinese New Year Gala, with diverse performances, games and other activities.

After the gala, we had a Happy Hour event, combined with the poster session of our annual retreat. This was a good opportunity to discuss the posters of many students and postdocs, while enjoying drinks, food and, surprisingly, Spanish music! The poster session included the selection of the best posters by all PSC members. Congratulations to our lab member Xianliu, who won the second price in the poster awards.

Pre-Summer Lab Dinner

Because Summer has come, Yali and Jiamin (1st-year MSc students) have finished their exams, Gang has joined us as postdoc, and because any excuse is good to go out together, we went out for lab dinner together with members from the Lozano-Durán Lab (and also, to welcome their new lab members Laura and Aurora).

"520" Happy Hour event at PSC

Chinese celebrate love on May 20th (usually written 5.20). Why? When you pronounce the numbers 5. 2. 0 in Chinese, 五二零 (wǔ èr líng), they sound very close to the words 我爱你 (wǒ ài nǐ), meaning "I love you".

PSC was ready to celebrate the love day with a Happy Hour event and a competition where different labs prepared food or drinks. PSC members had hearth-shaped stickers to show their support to each contender. Our mojito got a lot of love (as you can see in the attached slide show), and we had a great time together.

MPBI on TV!

Alberto participated in the Shanghai Science Week by giving a talk at the program ScienceX from the International Channel of Shanghai (ICS). The talk, entitled "The plant immune system: helping plants to save our lives" was aimed at introducing the plant immune system to the general public and conveying the need to study biotic stress to help the development of sustainable crops. Seven other scientists participated in the program, with topics that ranged from how plants are named, and black holes in the universe, to the use of big data in urban planning.

 

More details can be found at http://www.psc.ac.cn/news.asp?id=419. This program will be broadcasted on ICS at 8:00 pm June 1st, 2016.
