David Patrick Green's Summary

As Extension Leader in the Department of Food, Bioprocessing and Nutrition Sciences at NC State University, my responsibilities cut across all fields of food science at one of the nation’s leading food science universities. I provided leadership as director for the Center for Marine Sciences and Technology (1999-2006) and principal investigator for the NC Sea Grant Seafood Science and Technology Program (1995-2010) with day-to-day management responsibility for the NC State University Seafood Laboratory (1986-present).


My seafood laboratory group developed a new molecular method for quantification of histamine-producing bacteria used in mixed culture as an early detection technique for reducing the risk of histamine fish poisoning. More recently, our laboratory is working to validate a heat shock process for in-shell oysters to eliminate risks associated with raw consumption of Gulf state oysters. Industry-related work inlcudes a cold-binding technique for restructuring scallop meats, Scallop Medallions™.
