Top RIPE Social Media Posts of 2022!
As the year comes to a close, we're looking back on our top five social media posts of 2022! Data was taken from our Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Instagram pages.
Coming in at #5 is one of 10 Years of RIPE series, from July, the Next Generation of RIPE Leaders!
A record number of former RIPE postdoctoral researchers are getting appointed as tenure-track lecturers and full professors at universities, and joining industry or research institutes to continue their careers in photosynthesis. We’re proud to support the next generation of photosynthesis research innovators!

Our 4th most popular social media post came from water-use efficiency research published in the Journal for Experimental Botany.
By overexpressing a sugar-sensing enzyme–called Hexokinase–in field-grown crops, researchers demonstrated the potential to generate plants with improved intrinsic water-use efficiency without decreasing photosynthetic rates or biomass production.
