John S. Song from Magenta Corporation in Illinois patented the Plant Culture container and Plant tissue culture vessel and filter wherein the base and cover include means for adjustably setting the gas exchange rate between the interior of the vessel and the ambient, and means for selectively defining a loose or tight fit between the cover and the base. In 1986, he wanted to provide a number of scholarships to promote and stimulate plant cell biology graduate student participation at the Annual Tissue Culture Association (now SIVB) meetings.
The John S. Song Fund Contribution supports the John S. Song Award which covers the travel expenses of students working in plant cell biology to the Annual Meeting. The student must submit a one-page resume of professional training and publications, an estimate of travel expenses to the meeting, and a letter of recommendation from a research advisor, along with abstract submission.
