Lunch with Mizzou Advantage

Mizzou Advantage has announced a series of brown bag lunches featuring leaders of projects that were awarded funding in the initiative’s recent second round of grants.

The lunches, which began March 9, will take place from noon-1 p.m. each Wednesday in 2212A-B of the MU Student Center.

 The March 16 brown bag will explore the health benefits and economic opportunities of the Eastern Red Cedar, a so-called “trash tree” that is widespread in Missouri. Researchers Brad Andresen, of the School of Medicine, and Chung-Ho Lin, of the Center for Agroforestry, will speak about how the trees may hold clues to fighting bacterial infection — and how gaining FDA approval might allow diabetic patients to ingest drugs orally, rather than receiving shots.

Complimentary pizza will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. For more information, email or call 884-6197.
