FEMA Excellence in Flavor Science Award

The FEMA Excellence in Flavor Science Award is not an annual award; rather, it is bestowed only when a deserving individual has demonstrated outstanding dedication to the advancement of flavor science through original research and publication in peer-reviewed journals.  In addition, a FEMA Excellence in Science Award winner must be a globally recognized researcher and a highly-acclaimed leader in the field.
