AFS’s Mindy Brashears featured in new Texas Monthly advertising campaign

AFS’s Mindy Brashears featured in new Texas Monthly advertising campaign

CASNR’s Mindy Brashears is part of an innovative research team focusing on a new food-purifying technology known as MicroZap. Key to MicroZap’s ground-breaking process is use of microwave technology to purify food and water. MicroZap’s technology will heat, but not directly damage the DNA of a biological substance. Brashears is highlighted in this month’s Texas Monthly (Every Day, I am a Red Raider; Dec. 2013; pg. 191). She believes the technology can have a huge impact on food security, which could mean providing the world with a safe, abundant food and water supply.
