FAPC to Hold 14th Annual Research Symposium
Oklahoma State University's Robert M. Kerr Food & Agricultural Products Center, together with the Institute of Food Technologists-Oklahoma section, are sponsoring the 14th annual FAPC/IFT-OK Research Symposium to highlight food and agricultural products research conducted by FAPC and other OSU researchers.

The symposium will be held Feb. 18 in room 201 of FAPC from 8 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. and will feature oral and poster presentations and two speaker presentations.

"The event will provide an opportunity for graduate students to make presentations of their work and for researchers to network with others in the food and agricultural field and possibly foster future collaborations among colleagues," said Peter Muriana, FAPC food microbiologist and chair of the symposium.

The first speaker, Dinesh Babu, former student of Muriana and now assistant professor in the department of toxicology at the University of Louisiana at Monroe, will deliver a presentation titled "Emerging Food Safety Issues and My Research Directions."

The second speaker, Kanika Bhargava, assistant professor in nutrition and food management at the University of Central Oklahoma, will present the topic of "Delivering Lipophilic Food Antimicrobials in Emulsions."

"This year, we are fortunate to have two speaker presentations," Muriana said. "I am excited to host two new, young faculty members and colleagues in the food safety - food science curricula.

An industry luncheon with Babu and Bhargava will take place upon completion of the symposium.

"We are very excited to have both professionals discuss important industry related topics," said Chuck Willoughby, FAPC manager of business and marketing relations. "We encourage food and agricultural industry leaders to attend the luncheon to network with Dr. Babu and Dr. Bhargava."

Following the second keynote address, student awards will be presented in both the oral and poster presentation categories. The top student winner of each category will receive $200 from IFT-OK.

The symposium is open to anyone who wants to attend. There is no charge for the day's events; however, registration is required.

This year's FAPC research symposium is being held in conjunction with OSU Research Week, which runs Feb. 17-21.
