Executive director of the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI) Pauline Mooney has been appointed to the board of directors of the CRC for High Integrity Australian Pork (Pork CRC).

Mooney replaces Simon Maddocks, following his resignation to accept a position as vice-chancellor at Charles Darwin University in the Northern Territory.

She brings with her 29 years’ experience in science, business and financial leadership, including extensive experience in strategy planning, research and project management for primary industries research across terrestrial, marine, livestock and food sectors.

Mooney said: "Although the drivers and science behind the Pork CRC’s programs will be new to me, my research interests have always been eclectic, so the opportunities the industry has before it and the associated challenges certainly have sparked my interest."

The CRC is involved with four research programs: the reduced confinement of sows and piglets; herd health management; healthy pork consumption; carbon-conscious nutrient inputs and outputs.
