US: ARS Technology Transfer Award

Several innovations have garnered technology transfer awards for Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists at laboratories nationwide, one of particular interest to the poultry industry.

For moving their research-based technologies out of the laboratory and into the marketplace, 15 ARS experts and their university and corporate co-investigators were recently honoured by the agency.

Top honours for outstanding technology transfer went to William A. Dozier III, formerly with the ARS Poultry Research Unit in Mississippi State, Miss., for quickening transfer of new, science-based technologies to the US poultry industry.

"Agricultural research is fundamental to the strength of our farm sector, and holds the key to improving nutrition, fostering the development of new sources of renewable energy, and creating new sources of revenue for our farmers and ranchers," said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack.
