Carolyn Berdanier

Carolyn Berdanier, professor emerita and former head of the department of foods and nutrition, will be inducted into the FACS Honor Hall of Recognition for her lifetime of contributions to the field.

A prolific researcher investigating nutrient-gene interactions in diabetes, Berdanier published more than 200 research articles, reviews and book chapters and has been a generous supporter of undergraduate researchers within the college.

She joins just 28 others in the Honor Hall, which was established in 1980 to recognize those who have made highly significant contributions in the field of family and consumer sciences; who have impeccable character and commitment and who have provided outstanding leadership.
