About the Presenter

Martin Chlivers is a visiting Assistant Professor at Michigan State University.  He studies diseases of field crops, and the biology and genetics of fungal and oomycete organisms that cause disease. He utilizes both classic techniques such as culturing causal agents and the latest technologies, such as next generation sequencing of metagenomes, to improve disease management by understanding the organisms, factors, and host-pathogen interactions that drive disease.

About the Extension Foundation

The Extension Foundation was formed in 2006 by Extension Directors and Administrators. Today, the Foundation partners with Cooperative Extension through liaison roles and a formal plan of work with the Extension Committee on Organization and Policy (ECOP) to increase system capacity while providing programmatic services, and helping Extension programs scale and investigate new methods and models for implementing programs. The Foundation provides professional development to Cooperative Extension professionals and offers exclusive services to its members. In 2020 and 2021, the Extension Foundation has awarded 85% of its direct funding back to the Cooperative Extension System, 100% of funds are used to support Cooperative Extension initiatives.
