It is exciting to see the strategic directions of the state and the university line up to solve the important global food problem. My lab investigates new food safety technologies. I bring experience with prior successful centers such as the Targeted Investment in Public Health Preparedness. I recognize the synergy of people collaborating based on shared objectives and mutual respect. We are entering a new phase of intensive collaboration with the university investing in culture transformation. The Food Innovation Center includes the most talented and forward thinking scholars impacting food. No other institution has these people or ideas so this is potentially a world-changing event.
