The American Society for Microbiology honors I. Kaye Wachsmuth
Date:6/7/2012

y and internationally. She chaired the Codex Alimenterius Committee for Food Hygiene (which sets international food safety standards) for seven years, and the National Advisory Committee on Microbiological Criteria for Foods for eight years. She has also served on many other boards and committees, including the Board of Trustees of the International Centre for Diarrheal Diseases Research in Bangladesh, the Board of Directors of the International Child Health Foundation, and the International Health Regulations Roster of Experts, and served on the WHO Expert Panel on Food Safety for twelve years. She has been a Fellow of the Infectious Diseases Society of America and the American Academy of Microbiology. She has also edited a book on cholera and published over 160 peer-reviewed articles in scientific literature.

In 2011, Wachsmuth worked with the state of Delaware to address and implement many of the public health policies developed during her time at FDA and USDA, e.g., preventive, science-based strategies for the microbial safety of fresh fruits and vegetables. During this time, she worked closely with local producers, state officials and dedicated microbiologists in university extension services.

"I can think of no one who has been more committed to advancing public health nationally and globally than Wachsmuth," says Robert Buchanan, University of Maryland. "She has been the inspiration for a whole generation of food safety scientists in the developing countries of the world."
