Hod Lipson, professor of mechanical engineering and data science at Columbia University, shares the technology of 3-D food printers. These devices can fabricate edible items through computer-guided software and cook edible pastes, gels, powders, and liquid ingredients - all in a prototype that looks like an elegant coffee machine.

About the Hilton Chair
The Helen LeBaron Hilton Chair was established by Helen LeBaron Hilton, who served as dean of what was then the Iowa State University College of Home Economics from 1952 to 1975. LeBaron Hilton was an advocate of the status of women and the well-being of children.

In 1993, LeBaron Hilton bequeathed $1.4 million, establishing the largest fully endowed faculty chair fund at Iowa State University at the time. Hilton Chair funds enable the College of Human Sciences to bring visionary programming that exemplifies the College's focus on advancing the well-being of children, families and consumers in Iowa and beyond.
