Alan H. Chambers, PhD

My Passion


I am a tropical fruits breeder creating novel cultivars through deep genomic/genetic insights and advanced molecular methods. The primary objective of my program is to increase value to growers and enhance the consumer experience. I am passionately interested in superior agronomic performance, enhanced sensory and nutritional quality, optimized sustainable production, and gaining fundamental insights enabling future genetic gains.

My rapidly expanding program includes mango, banana, papaya, passion fruit, avocado, Vanilla, strawberry, and other tropical/subtropical fruits. I am interested in developing domestic and international collaborations towards deploying genetic solutions that will improve access to nutritious, affordable, and abundant food irrespective of geography.
