From A Land Down Under

Raymond Cadmore

This fall, Forsyth Tech, through the National Center for the Biotechnology Workforce (NCBW), hosted Australian Fulbright Professional Scholar Raymond Cadmore. Mr. Cadmore teaches food processing sustainability at Sunraysia Institute of TAFE in Mildura, in northwestern Victoria, Australia. (TAFE, similar to the U.S. community college system, is Australia’s largest provider of vocational education and training.) While at Forsyth Tech, Mr. Cadmore shared his research and observations in a presentation as part of Forsyth Tech’s SciTech Lecture series. During his Fulbright research in the U.S., Mr. Cadmore visited several colleges as well as federal and state officials, with the goal of taking best practices observed here back home to help build that country’s biotech and biomanufacturing workforce. Mr. Cadmore returned to Australia in November.
