Award-winning Scientist Training Award-winning Students
There are just some things worth repeatedly sharing and at Fort Valley State, we have a worthwhile tradition of sharing a legacy of excellence in research with our student scholars. One such example is FVSU professor, scientist and Fulbright scholar Dr. George Mbata. This world-renowned entomologist is leading the charge on research related to protecting the food resources of the future. In particular, Mbata ’s research is focused on protecting harvested crops from damage and losses from insects as well as improving methods or “best practices” for delivering crops to market. At Fort Valley State, this impressive thinker is engaged in training the next generation of great thinkers, including FVSU student researcher Joseph Nesbit.
