Lauren Hanna, assistant professor of animal sciences – genetic improvement of livestock, recently served on the USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture’s Peer Review Panel for the Predoctoral and Postdoctoral Fellowships Program.
The fellowships program promotes advances in the nation's food, agriculture and forestry. The panel worked to support agriculture under the constraints of a growing population, pressure on natural resources and climate change.
According to national program director Ray Ali, it requires research education, Extension and integrated programs to increase agricultural and natural resource sustainability.
"This peer review panel was responsible for reviewing and evaluating the proposals submitted for the fiscal 2015 program. We take great pride in the excellence reflected by this panel, and the expertise and dedicated efforts of Dr. Hanna contributed greatly to the quality of the review process,” Ali said.
Hanna joined the NDSU faculty in 2013. She earned her bachelor's degree, master's degree and doctorate in animal breeding at Texas A&M University.
