UGA Plant Pathology is home to productive faculty, staff, and graduate students but our undergraduate research students are successful as well.
The 67th annual meeting of the Georgia Association of Plant Pathologists (GAPP) was held March 6-8, 2017 on Jekyll Island, Georgia. There were over 70 participants, including faculty, students, staff, extension agents, industry representatives, and other plant pathology researchers from across the Southeast.
“Dr. Gitaitis is an instrumental leader of our research and Extension team at UGA. His wealth of knowledge has helped to make my job easier over the years,” said Cliff Riner, coordinator of the UGA Vidalia Onion and Vegetable Research Center and the Vidalia-onion-area UGA Extension agent. “He is very thorough and caring about the direction of his research program, and has mentored many fellow faculty members. We have served on many teams and projects together, and he constantly makes everyone around him better. Dr. Gitaitis is very deserving of the Hall of Fame honor.”
