But few MSU plant breeders have been more successful than AgBioResearch scientist James Hancock. A professor of horticulture and recipient of the 2014 MSU Innovation Center Technology Transfer Achievement Award for excellence in applying innovation to create real-world solutions, Hancock developed three of the world's most widely planted Northern Highbush blueberry varieties: Aurora, Draper and Liberty along with several other successful cultivars throughout his three decades at MSU.
