The numbering of the undergraduate courses has been changed.

I consider my research program to be an essential branch of my activity in training people to become, for example, scientific researchers, teachers and scientifically-literate citizens. In addition to the Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Fellows which I have trained, Undergraduate Students also work with me in my research program. The latter generally start as Summer Research Students and eventually do their graduation thesis on a research project. Typically, between one to five such students work with me each summer. Teaching them to do productive research is very "labour-intensive" - more so, perhaps, than in the case of Graduate Students - since Undergraduates have little experience. By the middle of the Summer, however, a clever person will have learnt enough to do productive, and in some cases original, work. The results of their work are frequently published.

In the last decade I have trained about 20 to 25 such Undergraduate, Graduate Students and Postdocs as well as Technical people who have worked for me in various capacities. The last named includes training involving computer simulation and working in the Food Research Laboratory. Some of these people have become "Resource Persons" and have been employed by other University Faculty to assist them with research.
