About PSC

The Shanghai Center for Plant Stress Biology (PSC) was created in 2012 as a research unit of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), with funding from CAS. With 16 principal investigators and more than 250 researchers and staff members, PSC aims to become an international leading center for plant research, focusing on the study on plant responses to environmental stresses, plant nutrition, epigenetics, and genome editing. It fosters innovative, vibrant, and interactive research groups synergized by a battery of state-of-the-art core facilities, including genomics, metabolomics, proteomics, microscopy and transformation facilities. PSC strives to develop fundamental and applied knowledge to achieve sustainable solutions to protect plants from environmental challenges.
