Now well into its second decade, Macdonald's ever-popular Food for Thought Lecture Series is gearing up for another series of fascinating and thought-provoking lectures.
The series kicks off on Tuesday, September 9 with a lecture by Professors Jim Fyles (Natutal Resource Sciences) and George McCourt (McGill School of Environment) who will address the issue of Global Carbon, this year's series' theme.
Each summer top students in the Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences undertake hands-on, innovative research programs with leading faculty members. Join us as these students showcase the fascinating results of their experience as NSERC or CIHR undergraduate student researchers.
