"Genetically modified organisms" "Genetically engineered crops" These terms are used all the time by the general public. But how can scientists best discuss food-related issues with the public in a clear manner? Join us for a discussion with Dr. Lemaux to discuss strategies for communicating science based on her experience as an agricultural scientist using genetic engineering. Dr. Lemaux, in addition to her distinguished research career at UC Berkeley, is involved with ucbiotech.org, an award winning website focused on science-based information and resources agriculture, food, and technology.
