The Translational Plant Sciences Graduate Program (TPSGP) encompasses current themes in global agriculture, plant-based biotechnology, and international academia-industry interactions.  Students actively explore these areas through a tailored program of in-depth research experiences coupled with rigorous coursework and internship opportunities.

The TPSGP is a newly established 5-year PhD program at Ohio State within the Center for Applied Plant Sciences. This dynamic program offers students a cutting-edge, interdisciplinary environment with themes of innovation and sustainability at its core. The program leverages the strengths of a powerful interdisciplinary group of participating faculty that span multiple disciplines. It is designed for exceptional and highly motivated students. Students should have the ability to work independently within a supported environment with the drive and passion necessary to do high impact research to become next-generation leaders in global plant sciences and agriculture biotechnology. This program offers full remission of tuition and fees, a competitive stipend, and research related costs for the entire duration of the PhD.
