Lyndon Carew, Ph.D.

Professor Emeritus

For over 42 years, Dr. Carew taught the only introductory course in nutrition at UVM to approximately 500 students per year. Students from all areas of the University used the course as a major requirement and as an elective. Students learned about the scientific principles of nutrition for all mammals, including humans, and their relation to health. Dr. Carew was one of the first professors to offer lecture materials online, replacing the standard textbook, and students could review his lectures "from any place in the world". Dr. Carew has a deep interest in the problems of human and animal nutrition in Latin Anerica, and has worked with researchers in Honduras, Colombia and Ecuador on developing new feed ingredients for chickens, as well as promoting the development of chicken meat and eggs for human consumption. He has taught courses in Spanish and given lectures on human and animal nutrition in these three countries.
