Fayetteville State University Honors Dr. Hortense Dodo

From George Washington Carver to Dr. Hortense Dodo

Dr. Dodo is an African American scientific entrepreneur, and an inventor. She is also a molecular biologist, and a university professor. Dr. Dodo developed a patented technology to eliminate allergens from peanuts, one of the most severe and deadly food allergies. In the U.S., approximately four million people report allergies to peanuts and tree nuts. Studies show the number of children living with peanut allergy appears to have tripled between 1997 and 2008, according to FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education). About $25 billion dollars are spent on food allergies in the U.S. alone with peanut allergies being a common and most severe food allergy. Unfortunately, so far there is no cure for peanut allergies, but thanks to Dr. Dodo’s work, there may be a solution on the market soon.
