Science on Tap Summer Series: "The Science of Plants and Sustainability"

Wednesday, August 29, 2018 at 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Casita Del Polaris 1201 North Tioga Street

"Science on Tap!" aims to make science accessible to everyone. We will bring a diverse set of speakers studying a range of research topics from Cornell into the community who will present their research in an authentic but also engaging and understandable way.

During our special “Summer Series” sessions you will hear from two early-career scientists who are actively involved in the latest and greatest research going on just up the hill as they explain how their studies relate to real world issues.

So, come grab a drink, sit back, relax, get informed and join us this month for "The Science of Plants & Sustainability: lasting food supplies and telling environmental time!" with:

Juana Munoz, PhD Candidate in Horticulture
“Invisible forces for farming: how soil microbes interact to promote plant growth for more sustainable agriculture.”


Dr. Brita Lorentzen, Postdoc in Classics
“Trees as time capsules: using tree-rings to learn about the past to help prepare for future climate and environmental changes and restore damaged ecosystems.”

Brought to you by: Graduate Women in Science Cornell & Northstar House

Funded by: Cornell's GPSAFC, Cornell's Office of Postdoctoral Studies, Cornell BEST & OISE

Open to the public and the Graduate Community.
