The American Feed Industry Association in partnership with the Poultry Science Association (PSA) recently recognized Aaron Cowieson, Ph.D., principal scientist for DSM Nutritional, for his contributions to poultry nutrition. Janet Remus of Dupont presented the Poultry Nutrition Research Award to Cowieson during the annual 105th PSA meeting in New Orleans, La.

Prior to joining DSM Nutritional Products, Cowieson was director of the Poultry Research Foundation in the Faculty of Veterinary Science at the University of Sydney, Australia.

"Cowieson has an impressive 20 years of experience working in feed enzyme research and development," said Richard Sellers, AFIA senior vice president of public policy and education. "In addition to his work at DSM, he's also retained as an adjunct professor of poultry nutrition by the University of Sydney."

Cowieson earned a master's degree in analytical chemistry and a doctorate in poultry nutrition at the University of Aberdeen (Scotland). He also completed a postdoctoral research fellowship at the Scottish Agricultural College.

The Poultry Nutrition Research Award is sponsored jointly by AFIA as part of its continuing awards program, which dates back to 1948. The award was presented to Mingan Choct, Ph.D., a professor at the University of New England, in 2015.
