14 November 2022 - The Riddet Institute’s Scientific Advisory Panel (SAP) had a chance to meet in person during the recent Riddet Institute Conference and Student Colloquium in Napier. The SAP intends to meet in person every year, but the global Covid-19 pandemic has prevented this for two years.

The SAP members are: Prof. Alistair Robertson (Chair) who is former Group Executive-Food, Health and Life Science Industries, CSIRO, Australia; Prof. Rickey Yada, Dean of the Faculty of Land and Food Systems, University of British Columbia, Canada; Prof. Manny Noakes, former Director and Senior Principal Research Scientist, Nutrition and Health, CSIRO, Australia; Prof. José Miguel Aguilera, Emeritus Professor of Chemical and Food Engineering, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile; Prof. Oded Shoseyov, Professor of Protein Engineering and Nanobiotechnology, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel; and Aotearoa New Zealand’s Prof. Tracey McIntosh, who is Ngāi Tūhoe and Professor of Indigenous Studies at the University of Auckland and a former board member of the Riddet Institute.
