Dr. Shelby Ellison is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Plant and Agroecosystem Sciences at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. She received a B.S. at UW-Madison, a Ph.D. in Genetics at UC-Davis and was an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow at UW-Madison. Her research interests include preserving, characterizing, and utilizing genetic diversity in alternative crops to meet the needs of farmers while considering environmental implications. She is also interested in how human interactions with plants, through domestication and breeding, have altered the plant genome and how we can use these selection signatures to trace domestication and improvement throughout history. Dr. Ellison is leading a nationwide effort to collect feral hemp germplasm to help rebuild the new US hemp seedbank.

Viewers will have the opportunity to connect with leading experts in the hemp research community and learn about recent developments in the industry. Each webinar will feature a presentation by a hemp expert followed by an interactive Q&A session.
