Philip R. White (1901-1968) was the first to establish indefinite growth of isolated roots and of tumor tissues of plants. His 1930s and 1940s was groundbreaking and played a critical role in the development of modern plant biotechnology and the production of biotech crops. White was one of the best known and most influential figures of his generation in plant cell culture research.
The Philip R. White Fund Contribution supports the Philip R. White Award which is presented once a year to a student to be used to supplement expenses to further study plant tissue culture by acquiring specialized training in a plant-tissue-culture related technique not available at his/her home institution by traveling to another laboratory.
