Welcome to the Nebraska Academy of Sciences

The Nebraska Academy of Sciences (NAS) is a professional society dedicated to providing services to its members and to all Nebraskans. The Academy is affiliated with the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the National Association of Academies of Science. Located on the campus of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) in historic Morrill Hall, the Academy was established in 1880, and uses a set of seven objectives to guide its activities.

2018 Maiben Lecturer

Thomas Clemente 

Tom received a BS degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry from the Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 1985.  He earned an MS degree in Plant Pathology from Oklahoma State University in 1989 and a Ph.D. in Plant Pathology from North Carolina State University in 1993.  Following his doctorate program he did postdoctoral training at Monsanto Company from 1993 to 1996. Tom currently serves as the Director of the University of Nebraska’s Plant Transformation Core Research Facility, where he holds a joint appointment within the Department of Agronomy & Horticulture and the Center for Plant Science Innovation.

Tom has over 25 years of experience in plant transformation technologies. His program has established an agriculture biotechnology pipeline at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, which enables researchers to evaluate transgenic events from the bench to the field with procedures emphasizing identity preservation and stewardship of the biologicals.  This infrastructure was instrumental during the development of the dicamba tolerance technology, currently marketed as Roundup Ready Xtend cropping system.  His program is currently actively engaged in a number of transdisciplinary, multi-institutional team-based projects, targeting feedstock development for sustainable aquaculture feeds, designing genetic approaches to protect yield from both biotic and abiotic stresses along with enhancing phenotypic outcomes of C4 grass feedstocks for the bioeconomy.
