The CGIAR Research Program on Livestock recently announced with pleasure the appointment of Dr. Karen Marshall as its new flagship leader for Livestock and Genetics. Karen is not a newbie to the position, having led the flagship previously at the end of the first phase of the CRP under Livestock and Fish and contributed significantly to the vision and mission of the flagship in its next phase under the Livestock CRP.
