Darryl and Sigrun recently attended the 5th International Food Studies Conference in Blacksburg, Virginia. During the conference, they conducted a workshop on Nanotechnology in Food Systems, which was very well received. Since there was so much interest and enthusiasm about this topic, we decided to make our presentation available to all attendees well as other interested parties.

Please contact us if you have any questions, or if you are interested in a workshop, seminar or presentation by the GMO Breakthrough Education Project.
