Welcome to the Pollen RCN Website

An upcoming Plant Membrane Biol. Meeting will be held in Annapolis, Maryland in June 5-10, 2016.  The International Workshop on Plant Membrane Biology (IWPMB) is the premier international conference for researchers interested in plant membrane function. Over the last...
After pollination, pollen must hydrate, germinate, develop sperm, and grow a pollen tube to reach an ovule and egg. These performance functions are constrained to occur between stigma receptivity and egg maturity. Often, pollen must also compete with other pollen for...

5th Annual Meeting in Minneapolis was held recently in the University of Minnesota campus, bringing together pollen researchers from various parts of the world. Nearly 50 people attended the two day meeting. Group picture from the meeting on July 25, 2016.

Welcome to the Web site for the Integrative Pollen Biology Research Coordination Network. Our goal is to promote pollen-related research by sharing methods, helping newcomers to the field, supporting collaborations, educating the next generation of scientists about pollen research, and connecting researchers from primarily undergraduate and/or minority-serving universities with investigators from research-intensive institutions. To achieve these goals, the RCN provides travel subsidies and funds to support summer internships. We also produce workshops and a basic methods in pollen research course. To find out more and get involved in the Pollen RCN, explore the links to the left and above.
