Chair: Dr. Christopher L. Schardl

Since its establishment in 1963, our department has gained recognition as one of the leading Departments of Plant Pathology in the country and around the world. A defining characteristic is our intense focus on fundamental research, while still keeping “one foot in the furrow” by helping Kentucky’s agricultural community combat plant disease.
