Working from a sincere interest in issues of social justice, William Boyce Thompson founded The Boyce Thompson Institute (BTI) in 1924, believing that basic plant research could lead to real societal benefit. BTI’s 17 faculty-run laboratories and greenhouse facilities are staffed by more than 110 researchers from over 40 countries. The research out of these laboratories has the potential to improve important food crops, to demystify plant and human immune systems, and to reveal alternative, sustainable sources of energy.
