The Food Science Spring Research Forum & Poster Competition

April 2, 2019 at 4pm
Parker Food Science Building

Abstracts are due by March 5, 2019

Poster presentations provide the opportunity for the presenter and the audience to talk with one another. A physical arrangement similar to an exhibit area is used for this interaction. Each presenter is provided with a freestanding bulletin board on which to display the poster. A relatively large number of posters will be displayed during each poster session. During the designated period, the audience moves through the poster displays, stopping to interact with those who are presenting research that is of special interest to them. Poster presenters should come prepared with a 3-5 minute oral presentation to provide interested attendees.

Building a Stronger Future

Since 1985, Feeding Tomorrow has worked to ensure that the vital work of food scientists continue, and carry on to the next generation. Feeding Tomorrow has funded more than $10 million is food science programs, and distributed more than 4,000 scholarships to students pursing undergraduate and graduate food science degrees. In partnership with Discovery Education, Feeding Tomorrow provided food science resources to nearly 18,000 public high schools throughout the U.S.

Feeding Tomorrow knows that food scientists will be vital to addressing the complex issues of our food system, such as the shortage of essential resources required to feed our growing population.
