2007 Belfort Lecture

"Cereal Cell-wall Polysaccharides: Molecular Structures, Physicochemical Characteristics, and Functional Properties".

Lecturer: Marta Izydorczyk | May 1, 2007

The 2007 Belfort Lecture was given by Dr. Marta Izydorczyk Friday, May 11, 2007 at the WCCR Belfort Lecture and Technical Conference held at Purdue University . The title of her presentation was "Cereal Cell-wall Polysaccharides: Molecular Structures, Physicochemical Characteristics, and Functional Properties".

Dr. Marta S. Izydorczyk is currently a research scientist and program manager of Basic Barley Research at the Grain Research Laboratory, Canadian Grain Commission, and an adjunct professor at the Department of Food Science, University of Manitoba. She has authored and co-authored numerous research papers, book chapters, and conference contributions in the area of structure-function relationships of food carbohydrates. She is an active member of the America Association of Cereal Chemists International (AACCI), a member of the AACCI Scientific Advisory Panel, and a member of the organizing committees of the World Grains Summit: Foods and Beverages (2006), Plant Polysaccharide Workshop (2006), and Canadian Barley Symposium (2007). She sits on the editorial Board of the journal Cereal Chemistry. Her area of expertise is in the molecular structure and physicochemical properties of non-starch polysaccharides. Her research program focuses on identifying, understanding, and gaining control over mechanisms responsible for technological performance and physiological functionality of carbohydrate polymers from barley and other economically important Prairie grains in complex multi-variant food systems.
