When the COVID-19 epidemic hit Hawai‘i, Professor Samir Khanal of the Department of Molecular Biosciences and Bioengineering reached out to his friends and colleagues in Hong Kong, Mainland China, and Macao, asking them for face masks for a good cause. When they arrived, he generously donated them—all 1,000 masks!
Andre Seale in the Department of Human Nutrition, Food and Animal Sciences will host an international mini-symposium, “Approaches for Experimental Challenges in Aquaculture Research,” with Darren Okimoto and Darren Lerner from UH Sea Grant on January 15. Other CTAHR presenters include Fritzie Celino-Brady and Rajesh Jha.
Faculty and grad assistants in the Human Nutrition, Food and Animal Sciences department created an open-access online textbook to serve as an introduction to nutrition for undergraduate students. It covers basic concepts in human nutrition, key information about essential nutrients, basic nutritional assessment, and nutrition across the lifespan. They’re now looking for submissions for a new cover image for a revised edition! Image submissions should reflect food, nutrition, and the beautiful Hawaiian community.
