She’s early in her career, but Yu Wang, a University of Florida food scientist, is making great strides in her research. Recognizing Wang’s work, the Agricultural and Food Chemistry Division (AGFD) of the American Chemical Society (ACS) recently named her a fellow.
Wang, a food chemist with the UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Citrus Research and Education Center, may be the first assistant professor in the division’s history to receive this prestigious award.
The award is presented to scientists who have made significant contributions in the areas of agriculture and food chemistry. Wang may be one of the only fellow recipients who have received the award so early in their career and before they have earned tenure from their institution. This award will be officially announced at the virtual ACS meeting late in August, 2020.Learn more about UF Researcher Earns National Recognition Early in Her Career.
