Tina Jeoh Receives Danisco Foundation Scientific Excellence Medal
Biological and Agricultural Engineering (BAE) Professor Tina Jeoh received the 2021 Danisco Foundation Science Excellence Medal from International Flavors and Fragrances, Inc (IFF). Every year, the award recognizes one scientist for their scientific and operational excellence and a remarkable track record of accomplishments in research and collaboration with industry.
With the recognition, Jeoh received a $35,000 award and was invited to give a talk to IFF scientists at the Danisco Foundation Science Awards on September 20 in Wilmington, Delaware alongside the other winners from 2021 and 2022.
”I’m very grateful to have been collaborating so fruitfully with IFF scientists and engineers,” she said. “Several students from my lab received valuable training and mentorship in addressing ‘real world challenges’ through working with IFF. I am also grateful for the award money, which will be used to support new and existing students in my group."
