The Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry (JAFC) and the ACS Divisions of Agricultural and Food Chemistry (AGFD) and Agrochemicals (AGRO) are seeking nominations for the Research Article of the Year Award Lectureship.
Two papers will be awarded, one from each category, for an outstanding article published in 2019 (either in an issue of JAFC or ASAP) that demonstrates creativity and impact on agricultural and food chemistry as a whole.
2019 AGRO Best Paper
Bioactivity-Guided Metabolite Profiling of Feijoa (Acca sellowiana) Cultivars Identifies 4-Cyclopentene-1,3-dione as a Potent Antifungal Inhibitor of Chitin Synthesis
J. Agric. Food Chem., 2018, 66 (22), pp 5531–5539
Dr. Andrew Munkacsi is a Senior Lecturer at Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand. He received his Ph.D. in 2005 in Plant Biology from the University of Minnesota, where his thesis investigated the evolutionary history and population genetics of smut fungi that infect agricultural crops. He was then a Postdoctoral Fellow and Associate Research Scientist in the Department of Pediatrics at Columbia University Medical Center until 2012, where he investigated the genetics, cell biology and biochemistry of human diseases associated with defective lipid metabolism. Currently, his laboratory integrates bioactivity-guided metabolomics and functional genomics to isolate, identify and characterize antifungal compounds from agricultural crops and traditional medicines in Samoa and New Zealand, with the goal to treat fungal infections in plants, animals and humans.
