“Future Food for Thought: serving research pathways in alt protein” is a panel discussion by UniMelb Alt Pro Initiative happening on 2:15-3:30 pm AEST – Tuesday, 24th Aug, and everyone interested is welcome to join!
Have you been thinking about pursuing research in the FUTURE OF FOOD?
Join researchers from the Future Food Hallmark Research Initiative to learn about the exciting projects happening now and the opportunities available for making strides in developing alternative proteins.
