“Many opportunities for research and teaching have grown out of my experience in the ACES Global Academy. Since the immersion trip to Mexico, we have had ongoing collaborations, including hosting symposiums, hosting visiting scholars, and specifically my collaborations with the University of Guanajuato have resulted in publishing a chapter on aging and glycated end products for a book on the molecular basis of nutrition and aging published by Elsevier.” Dr. Karen Chapman-Novakofski, Food Science and Human Nutrition
