The 15th Annual International Scholar Research Exposition is supported by the Office of Research and the Office of International Affairs and showcases some of the world-class research undertaken by the more than 800 international visiting scholars at The Ohio State University. This year's exposition took place online through short videos.
Current international J-1 visiting scholars at The Ohio State University were invited to submit research summaries and 10 finalists from 8 different countries were asked to create research impact videos. One of the finalists is Ronald Meléndrez-Alvarez who is a visiting scholar in the Department of Food Science and Technology. He is here as a scholar from Zamorano Pan-American Agricultural School in Central America. He is mentored by Dr. Rafael Jimenez-Flores and the title of his research is "Bacterial Isolation and Identification from Appenzeller® Swiss Cheese Surface with Potential Impact on Spoilage and Food Safety."
