  • Center of Excellence for Food Safety receives $1M Grant Continuation from USDA NIFA

    Dr TangDr. Juming Tang, the Principal Investigator for the Center of Excellence for Food Safety, has received a $1M grant continuation for the grant’s second year from USDA NIFA. The four year, $4M grant, aims to accelerate technology transfer of microwave based food safety technologies by leveraging resources from the government, universities, and the food industry to bridge knowledge gaps and reduce technical and regulatory hurdles for food companies, particularly small and medium sized companies. This will be done by adopting novel technologies for the production of nutritious, safe, high-quality prepackaged foods and ready-to-eat (RTE) meals in … » More …
