The Young Researchers' Lunch for December hosted Robert Furbank, plant physiologist and director of the High Resolution Plant Phenomics Centre at CSIRO in Canberra, Australia. Dr. Furbank discussed a number of high-tech approaches that his group is developing and  the strong collaborative research network among scientists and wheat producers in Australia. He also had a number of suggestions for employing high-throughput phenotyping techniques at IRRI. I. Zarei, C. Diaz, S.Shrestha, R. Bahuguna, M. Sattari, and M. Acoba attended the event.

The Young Researchers Lunch is a monthly meeting for NRS and AFSTRI scientists who are in the early stages of their career. The purpose is to provide an opportunity for discussions with senior scientists on a range of topics including science and career paths.
