Research Project: INTER-INSTITUTIONAL COLLABORATION TO RECRUIT AND TRAIN A CADRE OF FOOD SCIENCE, FOOD SAFETY AND FOOD MICROBIOLOGY GRADUATES

Location: Dairy and Functional Foods

Project Number: 1935-41000-087-02
Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Apr 04, 2011
End Date: Apr 03, 2013

Objective:
To collaborate with Delaware State University (DSU) on mentoring and training up to six Masters degree students in topics related to food processing and food safety.

Approach:
The faculty of Delaware State University does not have expertise in food safety or certain food processing techniques or the facilities to conduct food safety and processing research. They propose that their Masters students satisfy their theses requirements by working with ARS Scientists on topics related to the use of food processing and related techniques that ensure food safety, as agreed upon by ARS scientists and DSU professors. This program will allow DSU to train students in food safety and food processing. This program will allow DSU students to obtain a Masters of Agriculture degree with a specialization in food safety.
