The Department of Plant Pathology and Plant-Microbe Biology’s Plant Disease Diagnostic Clinic (PDDC) is holding an OPEN HOUSE on April 25, 2013. The PDDC staff want to provide an opportunity for Cornell Faculty and Staff to stop by and see what we do. We are hoping that those of you that already use our services will stop in to chat about what we do for you, discuss if there are ways we can improve our services and possibly learn about other services that are available. We are also hoping that those of you that don’t currently use our services will stop in to see what we have to offer.

Please join us:

Date: Thursday, April 25, 2013
Time: 1:00-3:00pm

  • get to know your diagnosticians,
  • learn about our services,
  • observe state -of -the-art equipment in use,

  • or just stop by to say hello!
