Professor and HHMI Investigator Zachary Lippman was awarded the 2020 American Society for Plant Biology (ASPB) Charles Albert Shull Award.

Lippman is being honored for his pioneering contributions to the understanding of the genetic and regulatory networks and mechanisms in tomatoes and other related plants. His research focuses on plant genetics, dissecting the gene networks responsible for varied flower formation. His novel genetic strategies are aimed at improving crop yield.

The Charles Albert Shull Award is bestowed for outstanding investigations in the field of plant biology by an ASPB member under forty-five years of age. Established in 1971, it is named for Dr. Charles A. Shull, whose interest and support helped found and grow the ASPB.
