“To create a little flower is the labour of ages.” This quote from William Blake pretty much fits Abdelhafid Bendahmane to a T. Daring, innovative, and persevering, Bendahmane has spent years exploring the plant sciences. He is dedicating the award to his research team, those who have embarked on this adventure with him.
