The American Dairy Science Association® (ADSA®) is pleased to announce Catherine Stanton as the 2020 recipient of the ADSA Distinguished Service Award. Stanton was recognized during the virtual ADSA Annual Meeting.
The ADSA Distinguished Service Award was created to recognize unusually outstanding and consistent contributions to the welfare of the dairy industry, either directly or indirectly. The award is based on a broad, even nonscientific, contribution. Thus, outstanding achievements by those in industry, public administration, or academic administration shall qualify. The contribution may be national or international. The ADSA Distinguished Service Award is not for ADSA accomplishments. The winner must have fulfilled as of January 1 of the year of the award the contributions to the welfare of the dairy industry for which they are to be recognized, be living when nominated, and need not be a member of ADSA.
Catherine Stanton has been senior scientist at Teagasc, Moorepark Food Research Center, Ireland, for the past 25 years and is a research professor at APC Microbiome Ireland, University College Cork. She received an MSc (nutrition), PhD (biochemistry), and DSc in recognition of published work (2009). Her career focuses on development of innovative dairy foods that influence human health and the developing gut microbiota in early life. She is ranked in the top 1% by citations in the field of agricultural science (Clarivate Analytics, 2017, 2018, and 2019). She is a member of The Royal Irish Academy and previously received the IDF Elie Metchnikoff Award.
It is with great pleasure that ADSA presents Catherine Stanton with the 2020 ADSA Distinguished Service Award.
