Topic: “Farm to Fork: Feeding a Growing Population”
Presented by Dr. Ryan Cox

Regardless of statistical source, the scientific community agrees that the global population continues to increase and place demands on a food system that will not support it at its current capacity. Advances in agriculture and food processing technology are critical in meeting the demands of the evolving planet. In this unique time in human history, professionals in the food industry are positioned to have major impacts on how we shape the future of food. Additionally, unique to this challenge is the evolving demands and behaviors on the consumer.

With faculty appointments in the Department of Animal Science, as well as the Department of Food Science and Nutrition, his appointment is 60% extension and 40% research. Additionally, Ryan serves as the Unit Head for the Andrew Boss Laboratory of Meat Science. Ryan received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Animal Science from Auburn University, and his Ph.D. in Animal and Food Sciences from the University of Kentucky.
