Testimonials for Pioneer Member Katherine Esau

Patrick Shih – I was fortunate to have had the amazing opportunity to be supported by the Katherine Esau Junior Faculty Fellow Award at UC Davis. Being inspired by Esau led to some of the most unique research that has come out of my lab, studying how wasps can induce formation of novel plant structures (i.e., galls). It’s been truly an honor to be associated with Katherine Esau and all the seminal discoveries she made, which truly advanced the entire field of plant biology.
