A stellar panel of experts gathered Thursday, Feb. 5, 2014 at Shoreline Community College to discuss one of the more hotly debated subjects of the day: Genetically modified food.
The panel included Toby Bradshaw, Ph.D., chair of the University of Washington Biology Department, Natalie DiNicola, Ph.D., Vice President of Sustainable Ag partnerships at Monsanto Co., and Christina Own, Ph.D., program officer in the Agricultural Development group at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
The event was part of the ongoing Biotechnology Symposium hosted by the Shoreline’s Global Affairs Center. Center Director Prof. Larry Fuell served as moderator for the panel discussion.
After brief self-introductions and statements, the event was open to questions from the audience, which explored a broad range of issues and concerns regarding biotechnology and agriculture.
