Dr. Joseph Baumert, Associate Professor and Co-Director

Joe Baumert

Dr. Baumert's research interests include the examination of the digestive stability of major food allergens and determining how digestion-resistant allergens may impact allergic sensitization to foods; the determination of minimal eliciting doses for specific food allergens; the examination of processing effects on food allergens; and the development and improvement of immunochemical methods for detection of allergenic food proteins.  Dr. Baumert is an associate professor in the Department of Food Science and Technology.
