Syngenta Biotechnology founder and Distinguished Science Fellow
Mary-Dell Chilton, Ph.D., was one of three scientists to receive the
2013 World Food Prize in Des Moines, Iowa, during the World Food Prize Laureate Award Ceremony. The ceremony drew more than 800 international
guests, celebrating the foremost international award recognizing an
individual who has enhanced human development by improving the quality,
quantity or availability of food in the world.
Chilton’s work has led to the development of a number of genetically
enhanced crops, which farmers around the globe grow on more than 420
"For centuries, those in agriculture have worked to do by choice what
nature could only do by chance," she says. "With biotechnology, we are
working with nature on a higher level to more precisely determine the
outcome of crops. Through ongoing research, we can continually improve
their quality and productivity and do this in a way that will allow
future generations to provide for their needs as well."
