The Morris Lab at Furman University focuses on plant conservation. We use genetic tools to investigate population structure and the importance of clonal reproduction. Our goal is to inform on-the-ground conservation efforts to facilitate species recovery.
Furman University is a small, liberal arts college. Our team consists of undergraduate student researchers who work intensely during the summer and may continue their research while taking full, 16-hr course loads during the academic year.
We recognize that science benefits from representation of diverse perspectives. We welcome students and collaborators of all racial, ethnic, sexual, and religious identities, and people with disabilities. Science should be for and by everyone, regardless of socio-economic background or lived experiences. We seek to promote an environment that is inclusive for people of all abilities, and we strive to develop a community of learners that provides a safe, nurturing, and equitable space for all.
