The Penn State Center for Chemical Ecology (CCE) web site highlights our latest research in journals and other types of communications as well as jobs and events that would be of interest to chemical ecologists at Penn State, nationally, and internationally.

In 2005, Penn State researchers and facilities united as a center of excellence to promote collaborative research and graduate education in chemical and molecular ecology. The Penn State Center for Chemical Ecology (CCE) brings together researchers in complementary disciplines (biology, crop and soil sciences, entomology, horticulture, forestry, plant pathology, biochemistry and molecular biology) to explore the role chemistry plays in predator-prey, parasite-host, herbivore-plant, virus-vector, and intraspecific interactions. The center offers education and training to graduate students and postdoctoral scholars through PSU courses, international short courses, and seminars by chemical ecology experts.
