Carnegie Institution for Science at Stanford

About This Show:




This event will be extensively marketed in the Plant Biology and Global Ecology buildings.  We expect 50 to 75 attendees.

About this Institute:  Andrew Carnegie established this unique organization dedicated to scientific discovery “in the broadest and most liberal manner.” The philosophy was and is to devote the institution’s resources to “exceptional” individuals so that they can explore the most intriguing scientific questions in an atmosphere of complete freedom. Carnegie and his trustees realized that flexibility and freedom were essential to the institution’s success and that tradition is the foundation of the institution today as it supports research in the Earth, space, and life sciences.

What is special in this Institute?  World class scientific research in the fields of plant biology, developmental biology, earth and planetary sciences, astronomy, and global ecology.

The Carnegie Mission:  To unlock the mysteries of plant life, organisms that constitute the foundation for all life on Earth. We investigate how sunlight is absorbed and used by plants to produce biomass, how inorganic nutrients are captured and converted into organic matter using the energy from light, how single cells and the plant body are formed, how the environment shapes plant growth and development above and below ground and, in turn, how plants interact with and shape the environment. We focus on extending knowledge of fundamental biological mechanisms critical for plant growth and development through basic research. This knowledge will serve as a foundation for solving problems faced by agriculture, the environment, and medicine and for developing practices that enable global sustainability.
