Dr Joseph Hubert Galani Yamdeu wins Rank Prize travel grant

Dr Joseph Hubert Galani Yamdeu of Canterbury Christ Church University has been awarded a travel grant from the Nutrition Committee in the first round of the 2022 competition. Joseph will travel to the Institute of Bioanalytics and Agro-Metabolomics (iBAM) in Vienna in 2023 to develop his skills in food chemical analysis. The methods and skills he learns in Vienna will further his research into food sustainability, leading to a better understanding of the risk-benefit of future climate change on food systems and human health.

Joseph says: “The Institute of Bioanalytics and Agro-Metabolomics of the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU), Vienna, Austria, is one of the best in the world in cutting-edge scientific research to develop advanced methods in the field of bioanalytical chemistry. My host is a world leader in this research area, and the best to learn from.”

The Rank Prize travel grant is available to researchers in nutrition to learn techniques, use facilities or access data not available to them in the UK. It seeks to assist early- and mid-career researchers to make and establish contacts with international counterparts by spending time in an institution outside the UK.

The second round of the 2022 competition closes on 31 October 2022. Click here for more information and to apply.
