Congratulations to our own Dr. Maria Marco, who has just joined the board of directors of the International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics!
From the ISAPP website: "ISAPP is an association of academic and industrial scientists involved in research on fundamental and applied aspects of probiotics and prebiotics, and more broadly that of human microbiomes and gut health."
The October 2018 Issue of Wine Business Monthly was dedicated to recognizing some of the leaders in various aspects of the wine industry.
Congratulations to Dr. Anita Oberholster, Cooperative Extension Specialist in Enology, Department of Viticulture and Enology, UC Davis, and Dr. Linda Bisson, Professor Emerita, Department of Viticulture and Enology, UC Davis!
The Department of Viticulture and Enology will welcome a second Assistant Professor of Viticulture this coming Fall.
It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Dr. Jim Wolpert in October of 2018.
Dr. Megan Bartlett joined the Department of Viticulture and Enology at UC Davis as an Assistant Professor in January 2019. Her research focuses on developing models to predict grapevine responses to the climate conditions anticipated for California viticultural regions and identifying the physiology and anatomy traits that are most crucial to target in developing more stress-resistant cultivars.
