Her talk, “The GMO Wars: What do we do when scientists and citizens deeply disagree?" will explore the space between the need to produce more resilient and sustainable crops and public attitudes toward genetically modified foods.

The D.W. Brooks Lecture is held each year in honor of college alumnus and Gold Kist Inc. founder D.W. Brooks. The lecture is in conjunction with the D.W. Brooks Awards for Excellence, which recognize college faculty and staff who have demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to the college’s mission of research, instruction and extension.

Her lecture will be followed by light reception outside of Mahler Hall from 4:45 to 5:30 p.m.
