Dr. Timothy J. Garrett, SECIM’s Mass Spectrometry Core Director, and Dr. Fariba Tayyari, postdoc in SECIM’s NMR Core at the University of Georgia, were recently honored for their research at the ninth annual UF/IFAS Florida Agricultural Experiment Station Research Awards on Thursday, May 19, 2016. UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, IFAS, honored researchers for helping combat diseases affecting global agriculture, developing new plant varieties and conducting other impactful research and developments over the past year. The primary goal of the awards was to recognize and celebrate the very significant and important impacts IFAS research has had on advancing science and addressing important societal needs.
Drs. Garrett and Tayyari, along with their research collaborators, Drs. Liwei Gu and Haiyan Liu, received a High Impact Research Award for their publication in Molecular Nutrition & Food Research 59(11):2107-2118, “Profiling the Metabolome Changes Caused by Cranberry Procyanidins in Plasma of Female Rats Using 1H NMR and UHPLC-Q-Orbitrap-HRMS Global Metabolomics Approaches.”
