As one of the most influential and respected experts on the physiology of iron, Dr Beard will be best remembered for his discoveries related to iron’s role in the brain. His experiments revealed the underlying mechanisms whereby early exposure to iron deficiency can be harmful for brain development and cognition in later life. Dr Beard also had a passion for applying his research. It is difficult to increase the bio availability of iron for populations relying on subsistence farming. However, Dr Beard’s work called attention to phytoferr it in, the concentrated storage form of iron in plant sources, as a potential target for enhancement via plant breeding or genetic modification. He collaborated with Harvest Plus to increase the iron content of rice in a manner that could have an impact at the population level. Over the course of his fruitful career, he received numerous awards for his research and commitment to improving the nutrition of at-risk individuals world- wide, including the prestigious Kellogg Prize in International Nutrition Research
