Chung Park, professor of animal science, has been appointed by the Animal Production and Health section of the joint Food and Agriculture Organization and International Atomic Energy Agency division of the United Nations to lead a coordinated research project to study effective nutrition regimens and strategies for sustainable food production systems for both developing and industrialized countries.
The five-year, multi-national project will focus on developing practical nutrition programs that enhance lactation potential and muscle tissue development of livestock. The program will be based on the work conducted in Park’s laboratory.
His initial task committee includes scientists from Germany, France, Australia, the U.S., The Netherlands and Austria. The coordinated project will subsequently encompass 12 to 15 institutions from developed and developing countries.
