Cleveland Collaboration


Project team worked with collaborators at Cleveland State University and National Institute of Mathematics for Biological Science (NIMBioS) to organize the 1st International ‘Modeling Contamination of Fresh Produce Investigative Workshop’, April 24-25, 2014. For the first time, this workshop brought together biologists and mathematicians to forge new collaborations and work together on produce safety challenges. Three groups were formed to explore the major factors involved in modeling segments of the production chain; pre-harvest, post-harvest processing, and postharvest distribution. The meeting was successful in together people from diverse backgrounds to work on important problems in food safety.
