Description

A career-defining moment for Rajeev Varshney arrived in 2003 while attending a conference in Italy titled ‘From Green Revolution to Gene revolution’. The American agronomist Norman Borlaug, a Nobel Peace Prize winner and one of the architects of India’s Green Revolution of the early 1970s, ended his lecture with a challenge for the young scientists in attendance. He asked them to put to use the advances in biological and genetic sciences to tackle the problem of global hunger.
