overview

Dr. Patil's research accomplishments have centered on improving human health by examining health-promoting bioactive compounds in fruits and vegetables. As Director of the VFIC (http://vfic.tamu.edu), he works with scientists and industry stakeholders from Texas and beyond. His 'consumer-to-farm' research using system-wide approaches includes an examination of pre- and postharvest effects on bioactive compounds, isolation, and characterization of these compounds from different fruits and vegetables, and multidisciplinary research to understand their roles in human health. His seminal contribution, synthesizing and integrating the methods involved in the production of fruits and vegetables from plant breeding, agronomic practices, harvesting methods, distribution and sales, and finally consumption, has revolutionized the produce industry. Dr. Patil's contributions to education are no less distinguished. He developed and taught three unique, innovative multi-state and multi-disciplinary courses, \"Phytochemicals in Fruits and Vegetables to Improve Human Health\", \"Science of Foods for Health\" and \"The Nexus of Food & Nutritional Security, Hunger, and Sustainability\".
