Food for Thought: If we ban antibiotics use in agriculture, can we still feed ourselves?


Online on Zoom

Our annual Food for Thought Public Lecture Series is entering its 22nd season of bringing timely science topics to the community: our neighbours, alumni, students, staff and faculty!

Until further notice, all lectures will be online (Zoom link below).

This year's theme: “Celebrating McGill's Bicentennial and the promise of a better tomorrow"

The series launches on September 22nd with Professor Jennifer Ronholm, Asssitant Professor (Food/Animal Science).

Dr. Ronholm’s interests primarily lie in understanding the role of the microbiome in determining the susceptibility of individuals (both humans and agricultural animals) to infections. In 2020, she was named a World Economic Forum Young Scientist and won the Macdonald Campus Award for Teaching Excellence!

Professor Ronholm will look at the topic of antibiotics in agriculture and the impact on our food supply.
