Graduate student, Thet Aung, successfully defended her master's thesis advancing cellular agriculture methods for oysters
Join us in congratulating this incredible scientist, Thet Aung, on a fantastic thesis defense "Developing Cultivated Mollusks Through Establishing Primary Cell Culture Methods of Eastern Oyster, Crassostrea virginica, as a Model Bivalve" last week. Her time at our research center included moves, discoveries, and many, many hours shucking oysters. Thet, a graduate student in the Department of Food Science and Technology, will be missed around our office, but we can't wait to see where her curiosity takes her next!
Learn more about cellular agriculture and see Thet at work with the Future Foods Lab program at the Virginia Seafood AREC.
