Juming Tang, Regents Professor and Department Chair, Department of Biological Systems Engineering, Washington State University, has been elected to the Washington State Academy of Sciences for forward-thinking research in the field of food engineering.
The Washington State Academy of Sciences (WSAS) is delighted to announce 24 new members in recognition of their outstanding record of scientific and technical achievement and willingness to work on behalf of the Academy to bring the best available science to bear on issues within the state of Washington. New members will be inducted into WSAS following the 12th Annual Symposium and Members’ Meeting at the Museum of Flight in Seattle on September 12, 2019.
About 20 years ago, the Microwave Sterilization Consortium (MSC) was established at Washington State University (WSU) to coordinate the efforts of academic, industry, and U.S. Department of Defense researchers as they sought to develop a revolutionary new method for in-package sterilization of individual meals. The main goal was to dramatically reduce thermal treatment time in order to maintain high organoleptic and nutritional quality while still ensuring food safety during ambient storage. Led by WSU Regents Professor and Distinguished Chair of Food Engineering Juming Tang, experts in microwave engineering, microbiology, packaging, process simulation, and sensory evaluation together developed the technology that would come to be known as MATS.
