Bahram Arjmandi, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Nutrition and Integrative Physiology, is hosting Fulbright Scholar Ines Ellouze, Ph.D., through June 2023. Ellouze will contribute to Arjmandi’s lab’s research and clinical studies centering around the impact of specific food on various diseases and health related disorders.
Ellouze comes to FSU from the Higher Institute of Biotechnology of Beja, Jendouba University, in Tunisia, where she is currently an assistant professor in nutritional sciences. Ellouze conducts research and teaches courses related to food engineering, biological and functional food, sensory analysis, bioactive molecules, nutraceuticals, agrifood systems, food packaging, and more.
“It is an honor for me to have such a high caliber Fulbright scholar as part of my team,” said Arjmandi. “She is not only hardworking, but also very decisive about the projects that we are working on and has a valuable point of view. I look forward to continuing our collaboration when she returns Tunisia.”
Each year through the Visiting Scholars Program, some 800 faculty and professionals from around the world receive Fulbright Scholar grants for advanced research and university lecturing in the United States. Individual grants are available to scholars from over 155 countries.
Fulbright opportunities are designed to advance scholars’ careers while benefitting their home and host institutions and countries. Upon return from their Fulbright experience, scholars and administrators are uniquely able to infuse curricula with cross-cultural perspectives and facilitate international research and engagement opportunities on their campuses. Fulbright Scholars make an impact and achieve success in every academic discipline.
