ASU researcher Charles Arnzten, co-director of the Biodesign Institute‘s Center for Infectious Diseases and Vaccinology, has been honored with a Centennial Award from the Botanical Society of America in recognition of his contributions to the advancement of the plant sciences. The BSA was formally established in 1906 and has been a bastion of support for the plant sciences and developing plant scientists over the past century.

“Plant sciences have evolved a great deal over the past 100 years, ” said Edward Schneider, president of the BSA.“Behind this evolution, dedicated people such as Charlie Arntzen have played a critical role. ”

Arntzen received the award at a special centennial reception hosted by Schneider and Peter H. Raven, past president of the BSA, during the Botany 2006 Conference on Wednesday, August 2, 2006 in Chico, California.
