Drake, MD and other key leaders at Ohio State to further discuss expanding research opportunities. The two-day visit was facilitated by the Division of Natural and Mathematical Sciences and the Brazil Gateway.
The Division of Natural and Mathematical Sciences has had a long standing research and training relationship with USP, first through the Plant Molecular Biology-Biotechnology Program and now through its successor, the Center for Applied Plant Sciences (CAPS). In addition, Ohio State is involved in a well-established tripartite research collaboration in biotechnology along with USP and Rutgers University, that includes biannual scientific conferences at each institution.
