Congratulations Megan!!

We are happy, pleased, excited, and ecstatic that lab PD Megan Van Etten has accepted a TT Assistant Professor position at Penn State Worthington! Megan’s work on the morning glory/RoundUp project has led to crucial discoveries about the nature of fitness costs across populations of this species as well as┬áthe genetic basis of resistance among populations (work to come!!). She has also examined the influence of the breeding system on plant weeds and introduced species (work In Press!) and the transcriptomic basis of inbreeding depression. Megan will continue her work on human-mediated selection and its influence on plant populations at Penn. We are sad she will be leaving, but oh so excited that she will begin building her lab and teaching!

Congrats Megan!!
