Dr. Bob Church is internationally known as a leader and expert in transferring the technologies of genetics, biotechnology and molecular biology to the food and fibre industries. He was instrumental in developing the worldwide cattle genetics industry and was one of the earliest scientists to analyse animal genomes. Bob was one of the key people in establishing the Premier’s Council on Science and Technology in Alberta. This organization grew into the Alberta Science and Research Authority, which Bob nurtured through its formative years. He is a rare breed of individual; a medical scientist of considerable accomplishment at the University of Calgary; a rancher with experience in sustainable agricultural production; and a catalyst that makes things happen in Alberta and around the world. Not only has he served the needs of agriculture in Alberta, he has improved the lives of Albertans and has made the future of rural Alberta brighter for everyone.
