Our research focus is an extension of the teaching mission. Teaching is about guiding students’ curiosity. Research is about freeing our curiosity – to see what everyone else has seen, but think about it in ways that no one else has.
The new facility will promote innovative research in:
• Meat and Poultry Production with a state of the art, slaughter-to-package, Federally inspected meat processing facility;
• Food Safety in the adjoining isolatable BSL-2 laboratory;
• Improving livestock production & human health with state of the art tissue collection and processing facilities;
• Value-added animal bio-products (adding value to the non-meat portion of a carcass)
