Food Research Hub:

The Food Working Group is compiling information on food-related research and activities in order to create a one-stop resource for all things “food” at Duke. Through this resource Duke researchers will be made aware of one another’s work and benefit from increased communication and knowledge sharing.

Request to be a part of our listserv to keep up-to-date on the latest happenings of the group.
