Robert Roberts, professor and head of the Department of Food Science, is joined by Ed Dudley, professor of Food Science, to discuss Bugs in My Food 2.0. This USDA-funded program pairs summer students with mentors in a research-focused program at Penn State that integrates bioinformatics with experiential learning opportunities in food microbiology, helping to secure the next generation of food scientists.
