We’d Eat GM Meat, Would You?
Thu October 9, 2014 @ 19:30 – 20:30
Would you eat bacon from a lab designed pig? Is GM meat really a solution to future food shortages? Debates about genetically modifying our food raise many concerns. Some are about the methods used. Some are about the concept itself. And some people can’t see what all the fuss is about.
Join Roslin Institute scientists Prof Helen Sang and Prof Bruce Whitelaw to hear about the cutting edge genetic engineering research happening right here in Midlothian, discuss the risks and opportunities with the scientists involved and decide for yourself – would you eat GM meat?
A licensed bar will be open prior to and during the event.
