Biographical Sketch

Dr. Barb Glenn has served as the scientific voice for national policies and federal regulations related to animal or crop agriculture since the 1990s. She is an effective communicator and has provided numerous written and oral testimonies to decision makers in federal regulatory agencies, federal research funding agencies, and elected officials. She is a strong supporter of science-based, sustainable solutions to help modern agriculture produce a safe and affordable food supply to meet the growing global demand for food and animal protein.

Dr. Barb Glenn received a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science from the University of Kentucky and a Ph.D. in Ruminant Nutrition from the University of Kentucky. She spent nearly 17 years with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Agricultural Research Service (ARS) as a research dairy scientist and research leader. From 1999–2003, Barb served as Executive Vice President and Scientific Liaison for the Federation of Animal Science Societies (FASS) where she provided leadership for animal agricultural science policy issues in Washington, DC. In 2003, Barb joined the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) as Managing Director of Animal Biotechnology in the food and agricultural section. At BIO, Barb developed a new program to serve members of the animal biotechnology industry in areas related to development of science and regulatory policies and interactions with the federal government. In January, 2010, Barb joined CropLife America, and is Senior Vice President of Science and Regulatory Affairs where she is responsible for the development, implementation, and management of effective science and regulatory policy strategies in support of modern agriculture through the crop protection industry, including pesticides and crop biotechnology. 

Dr. Glenn served as President of the American Society of Animal Science (1996-1997) and she is a Fellow with the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Quote from a Founder about the importance of this club:

"Barbara is the reason we have as many women as we do in ASAS. I will never forget how she "managed" the meetings in SD. Yet, when a little prof from MSU talked to her, she had time for me and remembered me. She is a model for all!", Gretchen Hill, PhD
