About the Lecture Series (top)
The Miller lectures honor Emeritus Professor Carlos Miller, who has a longstanding interest in the mechanisms of plant growth and development.
Mark Estelle, now at UC San Diego, was the first Miller Chair of Plant Developmental Biology. He established the lecture series in 2004 to honor Carlos Miller and his contributions to our department and the scientific community. Craig Pikaard, our second Miller Chair, joined the IU faculty in 2009, coming to us from Washington University in St. Louis.
