Prof. Dr. Katrina Campbell Appointed Section Editor-in-Chief of “Food Systems” in Foods

We are pleased to announce that Prof. Dr. Katrina Campbell has been appointed Section Editor-in-Chief of the “Food Systems” Section in Foods (ISSN 2304-8158).

Prof. Dr. Katrina Campbell is a Professor of Food Security and Diagnostics within the Institute for Global Food Security, School of Biological Sciences at Queen’s University Belfast. Her research focuses on the examination of food systems for the identification and recognition of known and emerging threats within the food supply chain from “environment to farm to fork to waste” and determining any consequential effects on plants, animals, and human health. A key element of this research is the development of (bio)analytical approaches that can be used for the rapid detection of natural toxins, chemical contaminants, and harmful organisms, as tools to enhance food safety and sustainability. These state-of-the-art scientific techniques and next generation biosensor tools as multiplex detection systems may create a new facet in rapid food safety monitoring and traceability for the benefit of plants, animals, and human health with an outlook on increasing food security.

We warmly welcome Prof. Dr. Katrina Campbell in taking up her role as Section Editor-in-Chief and look forward to her leading Foods to achieve many more milestones.
