Margaret Krause ('14) receives 2017 Jeanie Borlaug Laube Women in Triticum Early Career Award
Margaret Krause (B.S. Applied Plant Science '14 ) was named a recipient of the 2017 Jeanie Borlaug Laube Women in Triticum Early Career Award. The award, which was named after the daughter of Nobel laureate and University of Minnesota alumnus Dr. Norman E. Borlaug, aims to create development opportunities for female scientists working in wheat research in the early stages of their career.
Krause is a Ph.D. candidate in Plant Breeding at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. She is currently conducting her dissertation research as a U.S. Borlaug Fellow in Global Food Security at the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) in El Batan and Ciudad Obregon, Mexico. She is working to integrate new technologies like remote sensing and aerial imaging into plant breeding to more quickly and efficiently deliver new wheat varieties that are adapted to the changing climates of wheat growing regions in the developing world.
Through the Women in Triticum program, Ms. Krause will have the opportunity to attend a wheat breeding training course with the four other winners at CIMMYT's breeding station in Ciudad Obregon, Mexico in March 2018. In addition, the winners will have a chance to present their research at the Borlaug Global Rust Initiative Technical Workshop in Morocco in April 2018.
