David Pinzon

Regulatory Affairs Manager, Crop Protection and Biotech at Corteva Agriscience™, the Agriculture Division of DowDuPont™.

David Pinzon grew up in Bogota, Colombia and moved to Canada in 2009 with his wife to study a PhD at the University of Alberta. They had their second child in May 2018. “It is a constant learning curve to find out what’s the best for them, that’s why being able to share my science knowledge and experience with other parents is gratifying.” David dedicated 12 years of his life to becoming a scientist. “Learning science is probably simpler than knowing what’s best for my kids, so I understand how it feels being exposed to so much conflicting information”. David’s priority is to always do what’s best for his daughters. “I have the pleasure to see the huge amount of scientific support needed to prove GMOs and pesticides are safe for humans and the environment, so I can pass along my knowledge to those that are eager to learn”.
