Of wheat and genetics

Hélène Lucas is the Scientific Coordinator of the Wheat Initiative, a consortium dedicated to coordinating research on wheat at international level. Researcher in plant genetics, Head of INRA’s Plant Breeding and Genetics division between 2005 and 2011, and key player in developing and implementing research strategies with partners, one consistent quality sets Hélène apart from the crowd: she knows how to bring researchers, teams and institutions together, at both national and international level, to further research in plant genetics.
