We're partnering with our friends at the Squamish Public Library and the Pemberton & District Public Library to bring our Quest Lecture series online! In this series, Quest University professors present a lecture on their area of expertise and answer your questions on the topic.
This month, students from Quest University Canada will present and answer questions on their research on how plant biotechnology can be leveraged to address human impacts on the planet and human health challenges. Three student talks will be presented followed by a Q&A session moderated by Quest Professor Dr. Marina Tourlakis.

You will also be able to tune in on the Whistler Public Library Facebook Page.
About the course: Plant Development & Biotechnology
This course undertakes a rigorous study of the scientific literature to inform key questions surrounding the use of plant biotechnology. As such, this course lends itself naturally to an interdisciplinary approach and demand students challenge themselves to consider varying and polarizing opinions under the dispassionate lens of scientific evidence. This course thus illustrates how literacy in science can equip individuals to better ask and answer questions about their values and their planet.
This course is taught by Quest Professor Dr. Marina Tourlakis.
