The Graham Centre for Agricultural Innovation will celebrate the achievements of Charles Sturt University (Charles Sturt) graduates whose research is set to improve agricultural production and support the development of functional foods.
Nine PhD graduates, a Master of Philosophy graduate, and eight Honours research graduates will receive their awards in ceremonies at Charles Sturt in Wagga Wagga on Friday 13 December and Monday 16 December.
Acting Graham Centre Director, Professor Leigh Schmidtke said it showcases the diversity of research at the Centre.
“The research by these graduates takes in agricultural supply chains from paddock to plate looking at ways to be more environmentally sustainable, profitable and to develop products that may benefit human health,” Professor Schmidtke said.
“The formal graduation ceremony caps off years of study and the Centre is looking forward to celebrating the achievements of these graduates and the contribution they will make to our agricultural sector.”
