Research Center Formed

The Board of Regents during their meeting last week approved the creation of the Iowa Nutrient Research Center that’ll be headquartered at Iowa State University in Ames. Other research on nutrients was focused on food and nutrition, but I-S-U Provost, Jonathan Wickert, told the regents that’s not the case here.

Wickert told the board the center and its associated advisory council are now part of the Iowa code.

Wickert said the center will have a lean budget, with a director and a half-time person as support staff. The state is putting in one-point-five million dollars for each of the first two years of the center and Wicker said the center will run as long as the funding is provided.
