Reducing food waste and loss and enhancing the sustainability of global food systems is clearly a hot topic. However, the subject is more complicated and complex than some may think. This virtual symposium will not only address different implementation ready and emerging technology solutions but also will discuss the economics of food waste and loss reduction and the implementation challenges.

The symposium is designed to provide valuable information for...

Aaron Sachs will deliver the 2022 Rabinor Lecture in American Studies.

What do we mean when we talk about environmental justice?  Usually, we mean the crucial struggle against specific forms of injustice: dirty factories in poor, Black-majority neighborhoods; unequal access to green space; radioactive waste seeping into Native water supplies; the poisoning of Latinx farm workers; the flight of refugees from drought, famine, fires, and storms.  But environmental justice can also offer us a radical, positive vision of collective thriving—as a historical perspective...

Abstract: Precipitation is a consequential climate feature, which plays an important role in Earth’s physical geography and also its biosphere. As climate changes, so does the risk of disruption of the water cycle we have adapted to. The distribution of precipitation (or lack thereof) in space and time is anticipated to change, and in some respects already is changing, in response to warming. But quantifying the various aspects of this risk is a challenge because of the diverse sources of uncertainty – including natural variability, structural differences among climate models and their...

Bioactive materials of varying morphologies and compositions present opportunities in medicine, diagnostics, bioprocessing, and food & agriculture.  Effective design of new bioactive materials demands bridging innovation and pragmatism to enable synthesis of new material chemistries and bioactivities while addressing complexities of end-use applications (e.g. pH extremes, regulatory requirements, durability).  The Goddard lab has developed antimicrobial, antioxidant, and biocatalytic materials with demonstrated application in inactivating pathogenic and spoilage...

Many students and scientists were motivated to go into science not just out of curiosity about the world, but because they wish to solve societal problems and make a difference in the world – for example on environmental issues, climate change, or societal responses to sustainability challenges. But how do we make sure science is even relevant to what decision-makers and policy-makers need? How do we do this in a world that seems to speed up from year to year? Can we stay relevant? Scientists’ interactions with decision-makers have gone through several revisions of the so-called “social...

The spread of the COVID-19 pandemic has strained the world's healthcare systems and compounded challenges for governments and NGOs dealing with global waves of forced and voluntary migration. These movements of peoples across borders have magnified pressing issues ranging from social and economic inequalities and global climate change to civil war and political unrest. In the United States and worldwide, how can we promote the best public health outcomes while working to protect human rights, manage resources, and address inequality?

With a focus on the intersection of...
