CAFNR students explore the expanding Chinese food industry
In June, 20 Mizzou College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources graduate food science students will travel to one of China’s largest science universities to experience this wildly expanding market first hand. The visit is designed to prepare them for careers in a global food market where China is a major consumer and producer.
Good wine and great ideas were shared at the first Grape and Wine Symposium at the Bond Life Sciences Center last Thursday. More than 120 people gathered to learn about Missouri's growing wine industry and the innovative research from the molecular genetics of grapevine disease resistance to the health benefits of grapes and wine. The event provided a forum for researchers to connect and explore collaborative projects.
From genetics to chemistry, economics and marketing to health, the science of grape and wine production offer myriad possibilities for collaborative research. The Missouri Grape and Wine Symposium on Dec. 8 is a unique opportunity for researchers across campus to connect and learn about the impactful research going on at CAFNR’s Institute for Continental Climate Viticulture and Enology (ICCVE).
