Molecular Structure Concept

On June 9, UofT Talks hosted an engaging and thought-provoking symposium on Food Science at Innis Town Hall. Gairdner Foundation was proud to sponsor this event through our Ontario Programming in partnership with the Krembil Foundation to promote excellence and involvement in science in the province of Ontario.

This event featured individual talks from four experts from the Toronto community, followed by a panel discussion. Speakers explored a variety of topics related to food science, including personalized nutrition and the social and environmental implications of our food choices, and will discuss how food and nutrition can impact brain development, function, and mental health outcomes. After the panel discussion, attendees had the chance to interact with speakers and participate in workshops, followed by dinner.
