I-CARES, PARC brought photsynthesis researchers to WUSTL campus

More than 1,000 science researchers descended upon St. Louis during the second week of August for what Provost Holden Thorp, PhD, wittingly referred to as “Photo-palooza” for the gathering’s focus on photosynthesis research. Washington University in St. Louis’ International Center for Advanced Renewable Energy and Sustainability (I-CARES) served as host to the 11th Workshop on Cyanobacteria and the Photosynthetic Antenna Research Center (PARC) hosted the Light Harvesting Satellite Meeting 2013. Both meetings, held on campus, brought large numbers of scientists from around the world, as the meetings led up to the 16th International Congress on Photosynthesis Research, which took place in downtown St. Louis.
