Dr. Jeff Gwyn has worked for a variety of agriculture and plant breeding organizations over his 30 year career. Currently, Dr. Gwyn works as the Program Director for the International Wheat Yield Partnership Partnership (IWYP), a consortium of public and private institutions from around the world
that employs a unique new model for the funding, execution and coordination of large
international research agendas. He is responsible for the overall administration and operations,
and most importantly is charged with coordinating the IWYP Science Program to ensure that the
milestones and goals of IWYP are achieved by pushing discoveries from the research phase
through to the delivery of new significantly higher yielding germplasm to wheat breeding
programs worldwide. This includes the management of a centralized downstream development
platform to collect and integrate the research discoveries, as well as drive the generation of
added value.
