Riddet co-director receives international accolade

Distinguished Professor Paul Moughan, co-director of the Riddet Institute, has been awarded an honorary Doctorate in Science from the University of Guelph in Canada, for his significant academic contributions and leadership in food and human nutrition sciences. The award was made at the recent Spring Convocation of the university.

Guelph Vice-Chancellor Alastair Summerlee describes Moughan as “truly impressive” and stated, “he has helped make New Zealand a world leader integrating food science and food engineering with human nutrition and physiology related to human health”.

Professor Moughan is conducting research in protein nutrition, which looks at more effective and targeted ways of getting sustenance to malnourished people.
