The Center for Applied Plant Sciences (CAPS) is a partnership between Ohio State’s College of Arts and Sciences, College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, College of Engineering and the Office of Research. CAPS supports building strong connections between basic research and potential applications. The center's top priorities include the creation of new bioproducts and enhanced crop performance.

“CAPS allows us to tap into the incredible scientific expertise available at Ohio State. We can support interdisciplinary teams that take a very basic biological concept and translate it into an application that provides a practical solution to a problem, such as a new plant-based industrial product or a food that helps prevent cancer.”
