The Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (FAES) at Macdonald Campus has tremendous expertise and opportunities for innovations in research on agriculture, the environment, health, food, nutrition, pests and parasites, including from a biotechnology perspective. However, there are limited opportunities for faculty, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students to share their common interests in these areas.
In order to bring together the Macdonald Science Community, we have initiated a monthly seminar series - "4 O'clock Forum" - where faculty members and postdoctoral fellows are invited to present their work. Through these seminars on the Macdonald campus, researchers and graduate students will have regular opportunities to be exposed to scientific advancements related to their own fields of research as well as other scientific areas. Graduate and undergraduate students can benefit from these academic opportunities, all of which are aimed at stimulating critical discussions about contemporary research and issues in the agriculture and environment, to foster increased interactions among the Macdonald faculty, and to highlight our ability to deliver outstanding scientific contributions.
