A French researcher came to the Midwest to promote the work of INRA about the dairy product
The Office for Science and Technology at the French consulate in Chicago promotes collaborations between French and American scientists in all the topic of science and mainly agriculture, food science and green technology. The office was glad to welcome a French scientist, Frédéric Gaucheron, from the French National Institute for Agricultural research, to the Midwest from May 14th to May 24th. His coming was in order to promote collaborations between American and French research centers and scientists on the field of dairy products.
Dr Gaucheron arrived on May 14th to participate at the 11th international hydocolloids conference which was held at Purdue University, Indiana, from May 14th to May 18th. The scientists on the conference had been exchanged and discussed new ideas and findings in the study and application of hydrocolloids. Dr Gaucheron had been spoken for 3 sessions:
Baglinière F, Tanguy G, Jardin J, Rousseau F, Robert B, Humbert G, Dary A, Matéos A, Gaillard JL, Amiel C &, Gaucheron F (2012) Hydrolysis of casein micelles by AprX enzym from Pseudomonas fluorescens F induces their destabilization, May 17th from 11am to noon.
Mekmene O, Guillemin H, Perret B & Gaucheron F (Mai 2012) Prediction of the salt equilibria in dairy formula to control their technofunctionalities, May 16th from 2.30pm to 2.50pm.
Nogueira Silva N,, Piot M, Rousseau F, Robert B, de Carvalho AF & Gaucheron F (2012) pH-Induced destructuration of casein micelles modifies their foaming properties, May 17th from 10.20am to 10.40am.
After this first step, Dr Gaucheron went to Madison, Wisconsin, to meet John A. Lucey, professor at the Department of Food Science and, to take part at the 2012 IDF Cheese Ripening and Technology symposium to speak at one session:
Mekmene O, Guillemin H, Perret B and Gaucheron F (2012) Theoretical calculation of the micellar calcium phosphate solubilization during milk acidification, IDF Cheese Ripening & Technology Symposium, 21-24 May 2012, Monona Terrace Conference Center on Lake Monona, Madison, Wisconsin, USA (résumé et poster).
The goal of these presentations was to show the research topics and the research center in France about the dairy products in order to use the common skills to advance scientific research in this field.
