Dr. Joseph Baumert

Dr. Joseph Baumert, Professor and Director

Director Dr. Joseph 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 a professor in the Department of Food Science and Technology.
