Our Research

Research has always been at the core of the Food Protection and Defense Institute, from fundamental research to transitioning innovative technologies. Since 2004, we have continually listened and identified the current grand challenges that exist in industry and government.  Our research capabilities were once focused around Agent Behavior, Event Modeling, Systems Strategies, Risk Communication, and Food Protection Education. Our current research themes deal with ways to mitigate threats to the food supply in today’s global and digital landscape. This necessitated a shift to a focus on Risk Analysis, Supply Chain Security, Information Sharing, Agent Detection, and eventually Cyber Security.
