On April 28 1999, the application to form Umeå Plant Science Centre was formally filed to the universities. Now - 20 years later - UPSC is a leading research centre for experimental plant biology. We want to celebrate this with an anniversary party for past and current employees and others who have had connections to UPSC. On the same day, we will organise a symposium highlighting the contributions of Göran Samuelsson and Per Gardeström, long-term leaders of one of the UPSC departments, and both recently retired. The symposium will be followed by the official anniversary celebration, starting with a common activity.  Please find more information and the programme here:
