Presentation Title: Recent Research on Selected Middle East Feedstuffs for Poultry

Session II, Nutrition I

 

 Professor Mohamad Farran received the Diplôme de Docteur- Ingénieur in Animal Sciences from the Institut National Polytechnique of Toulouse, France in 1980 and his Ph.D. in poultry Nutrition from the University of Maryland, USA, in 1987. In 1988, he started his career as assistant professor at the American University of Beirut, Lebanon (AUB) and was promoted to associate professor in 1993 and to full professor in 2001. Dr. Farran has published extensively in peer reviewed journals and received research grants from several national and international agencies and companies.  In line with FAO recommendations, Dr. Farran has focused on the theme of food security and emphasized on increasing agricultural production in order to fight hunger and help alleviate poverty worldwide. The increase in market price and decrease in availability of animal feed ingredients caused primarily by the negative impacts of climate variation on agricultural production in arid and semi-arid areas, led Dr. Farran to investigate mainly the use of rain fed crops in poultry diets. Results of Dr. Farran's research have had significant economic and health implications. Among his many scientific achievements, he has succeeded in developing simple and less expensive methods of detoxifying harmful substances in food and feed legumes. He has contributed to improving food security in the region mainly by lowering production costs and making healthy animal protein accessible to the majority of the citizens of Lebanon and the region. He has also improved poultry production methods in the region and helped farmers produce more efficiently. His work has certainly contributed to increased animal protein consumption and thus to improvements in the nutritional status of all sectors of the population in the region. His work has been of significance at the national, regional and international level.

 

Dr. Farran has received several honors and awards such as the Hubert Humphrey fellowship from the US Government, the CS Shaffner award from the University of Maryland, the Lebanese Ministry of Agriculture award, the WPSA Lebanon – Branch Certificate and lately the "2013 CNRS Award for Research Excellence" on the Food Security Theme in Lebanon. In addition to being a consultant to FAO and UNDP, Dr. Farran has served on several scientific and technical committees and has been invited to deliver numerous lectures at local, regional and European seminars and workshops. The services that Dr. Farran has rendered to AUB, Lebanon and the region are too numerous to document in this short resume. Dr. Farran's scientific achievements and their impact on the poultry industry in particular and the animal industry in general have gained him, AUB and Lebanon recognition from poultry scientists all over the World.
