Primary Food Innovation Center Area: Foods for Health
Areas of Expertise: high throughput screening for drug discovery, pathogen detection and biodiagnosis, bioprocessing for production of healthy/functional foods, production of galactooligosaccharides from lactose
As Director of Ohio Bioprocessing Research Consortium, I bring my experience working with industry in developing novel bioprocesses for economical production of value-added products from food processing wastes. I bring extensive international connections with scientists and engineers from both academics and industry in countries including China, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, and Taiwan who do research and business in the targeted areas of the Center. The center can help further my research interests in bioprocess engineering, including developing novel functional and healthy food products via enzyme, cellular and process engineering, and applying novel biochip technologies for high-throughput screening and detection of pathogens.
