  1. Maggie Jilek, PhD

    Sep 14, 2016

    The Flavor Research and Education Center would like to congratulate Maggie Jilek on graduating with her Doctorate on August 30th, 2016.  Maggie’s research focused on the development of a solid state NMR platform to study the interactions between flavors and food matrix materials. The platform provides the ability to study both the structure and dynamics of flavor to matrix interactions in situ and evaluate the impact of matrix changes on these interactions. Her research confirmed the presence of preferential intermolecular interactions between flavors and food matrix materials.

  2. Qing Bin, PhD

    Sep 14, 2016

    The Flavor Research and Education Center congratulates Qing Bin on graduating with her Doctorate on August 29th, 2016.  Qing’s research provides a basis to understand bitterness development in whole wheat products, including key bitter markers, their origin, and pathways of generation. The goal is to improve flavor quality of whole grain foods by providing insights into better grain selection, storage and food processing strategies.

  3. Liyun Zhang, PhD

    Apr 26, 2016

    FREC is happy to congratulate Liyun Zhang for completing her Doctorate degree on April 26, 2016.  Liyun's research focused on the impact of thermal processing on taste modulation.  Her work provides insight into taste modulating compounds that can lead to better consumer acceptability in food products.
