The Donald Danforth Plant Science Center was recently ranked 8th in The Scientist Magazine's 2011 “Best Places to Work in Academia” survey, up from number 18 last year.

The survey is completed by respondents identified as life scientists with a permanent position in an academic, hospital, government, or research organization. This year, the survey received more than 2,200 qualified responses ranking a total of 111 organizations - 92 from the United States and 19 international organizations.
