Characterization of Novel Chloroplast Transporters in the C4 PlantMaize
It is very exciting to be able to continue my research over the summer through SURF. I would like to thank Dr. Hoffmann-Benning for getting me started in plant research and guiding me through the SURF application process. I look forward to learning much more from my research, as well presenting my findings in Montreal at the annual ASPB meeting in 2010.

The interaction of abscisic acid and phospholipase D mediated pathways in environmental stress signaling: The role of the cytoskeleton
It is with great honor and excitement that I accept this award. I would like to thank my supervisor Dr. Jan Marc for his encouragement and the ASPB for supporting plant biology education, even at the international level. I am sure this is going to be an invaluable experience and I look forward to embarking on my project!

Analysis of an Emerging Lineage of Wild Tomato
I can't express how grateful and excited I am to be a SURF recipient. My project is evaluating a possible diverging lineage of a marginal population of the wild tomato species, Solanum habrochaites. I will be evaluating trends of reproductive isolation between the marginal population and a central, outcrossing population, and possible genes involved. I can't wait to get my tomatoes out in the field and start my crosses!
