Biographies

George Holan is a chemist who made significant contributions to the agricultural industry when in the 1960s, while working for Monsanto, he developed Cycloprothrin, the first insecticide that was designed to effect only the target pest, while being non-toxic to the ecosystem into which it was introduced. Holan joined the CSIRO Division of Applied Chemistry in 1965, where he became a Fellow in 1993. He retired in 1995 but continued to work as principal research scientist for the BRI and Stapharma until 2006. In the 1970s Holan created pest-specific insect repellents, specifically to deter black fly and tse-tse fly, carriers of river blindness and sleeping sickness in the Ivory Coast and Kenya. Holan has also initiated research and development medication to counteract many of society's most fatal viruses such as AIDS, HIV, Dengue Virus, Hepatitis B and C.
