New joint graduate school with Plant & Food Research

The University of Auckland and Plant & Food Research have joined together to create a prestigious new Joint Graduate School in Plant and Food Science, the first collaboration of its kind in New Zealand. The School will focus on educating postgraduate students with an interest in plant science (including plant pests) and food science related to plant-derived foods, functional foods, food ingredients and neutraceuticals. Plant & Food Research is a longstanding partner in the Institute for Innovation in Biotechnology – the two organisations share three jointly appointed Associate Professors and engage in several collaborative ventures in research and teaching.
