“The CWCBExpo was amazing. I had the opportunity to connect with other university professors to talk about our programs and collaborations, but the best thing was connecting with the students and young entrepreneurs in the audience – they continue to give me a lot of hope for growth in this industry!” said Carlyn S. Buckler, PhD, School of Integrative Plant Science, Cornell University.
