We would like to applaud Professor Willem Boshoff on recently earning the title of Associate Professor in Department Plant Sciences at the University of the Free State. Willem is a much valued, longstanding collaborator of CenGen. In his capacity as wheat breeder at Pannar Seed (Pty) Ltd he initially was part of our molecular service laboratory (MSL) project . After he took up the position at the UFS in 2017 he became a collaborator on our wheat research projects – specifically contributing his rust pathology experience and knowledge.
Congratulations, Willem! This promotion is testimony to your success in both the commercial and research spheres. What a privilege it is to work with you and we look forward to many more field trials and papers tackled together.
