Arthur and Sylvia L. Crowder. Arthur is a professor of food science and human nutrition, and the Sylvia D. Stroup Scholar in Nutrition and Cancer at the U. of I. and an oncology dietitian with the Carle Cancer Center. Crowder is a research fellow in the Cancer Scholars for Translational and Applied Research graduate educational program in the Cancer Center at Illinois.
