Many feel that science is under attack across the globe as well-networked movements challenging scientific expertise are now a serious threat to human well-being, particularly the poor.

An innovative Cornell University program, with funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is working to reverse that trend. By effectively changing the conversation around crop biotechnology, the Cornell Alliance for Science is ensuring social justice for smallholder farmers in the developing world.  We invite you to meet Alliance for Sciences' passionate director, Dr. Sarah Evanega, and three of its international science champions who will share inspiring success stories about advances in agriculture, food security, and evidence-based policies from their distinct corners of the world.
