Northeast Section of American Society of Plant Physiologists
May 3-4, 1996
State University of New York at Plattsburgh

On behalf of the State University of New York at
Plattsburgh, we cordially invite you to our campus in the
scenic Adirondack Mountain/Lake Champlain Region for the
60th Annual Meeting of the Northeast Section of American
Society of Plant Physiologists.

The membership of ASPP has recognized the significance of
education by establishing an Education Foundation to foster
the importance of scientific literacy and plant biology.
Hence, the emphasis of this meeting will be on the
partnership of education and research as science moves into
the next century.

The Friday afternoon symposium on Regulation: Cell signals,
cell function and cell death will feature talks
by Dr. Judy Callis, University of California - Davis, whose
research interest is regulation of protein degradation and
Dr. Eduardo Blumwald, University of Toronto, whose research
interest is signal transduction.

The Friday evening teaching forum will feature Dr. Bernard
Rubinstein, University of Massachusetts - Amherst,  who will
speak and lead a discussion on OConsiousness Raising:
Emphasizing Plants in the Biology Curriculum.  The teaching
forum will include short presentations by a high school
science teacher and a community college instructor.  Come
prepared to discuss your ideas and suggestions for
increasing the use of plants in biology curriculum.  We look
forward to seeing you in Plattsburgh in May.
