CRC Association Showcasing Early Career Researchers Finalist: Dr Honor Calnan

Sheep CRC Postgraduate, Dr Honor Calnan, has been selected as a Finalist in the CRC Association's 'Showcasing Early Career Researchers' category.

Honor recently submitted a 30 second video clip to the Association titled "Retaining the red in lamb meat" and has been selected as a Finalist. 

Honor's PhD investigates factors influencing the oxidative process of lamb browning, identifying practical methods such as feeding vitamin E and selective breeding that can improve the colour stability and thus the value of Australian lamb meat.
