Top researchers join plant signaling cluster

Two internationally renowned plant science researchers will join UNT, bringing decades of experience and technical expertise to one of the university’s most prominent areas of research.
Vladimir Shulaev of Virginia Tech and Ron Mittler of the University of Nevada-Reno will be part of UNT’s Signaling Mechanisms in Plants Cluster, a team of researchers who collaborate to improve the understanding of cellular communication in plants to find solutions related to energy, agriculture, nutrition and medicine.
Shulaev and Mittler will begin at UNT this fall as professors of biology and will be supported by state-of-the-art laboratories housed in the new Life Sciences Complex, which is scheduled to open at the end of June. They bring the total number of plant signaling cluster researchers to seven.
