Barbara Mazur speaks at the Rosalind Franklin Society Annual Board Meeting

December 14, 2011

DuPont Agricultural Biotechnology Strategy vice president Barbara Mazur spoke at the Rosalind Franklin Society Annual Board meeting in December.  Mazur highlighted the role that science plays in meeting the needs of a changing society, and shared her experience as a female scientist in DuPont.


“I’m pleased to have this opportunity to speak on behalf of DuPont to these distinguished scientists, who mentor and recognize women in science,” said Mazur. 


The Rosalind Franklin Society was formed to recognize and foster the important contributions of women in science. Rosalind Franklin helped solve the structure of DNA, one of the most important scientific discoveries of the 20th century.  Franklin’s contributions were not recognized until after her death.  Named after Franklin, the Society recognizes the contributions of and fosters leadership opportunities for women scientists.


Mazur is based at the Wilmington, Delaware location and is responsible for Research Strategy for DuPont Agricultural Biotechnology.  She has been with DuPont for over 30 years, holding roles of increasing responsibility including leadership of Pioneer’s Crop Genetics Trait Technologies research programs and the Crop Protection Traits research program.
