"Manipulating the microbiota composition to alleviate obesity" with Dr. Claire de La Serre
Each year a leader in food research, education, industry or policy is invited to lecture in honor of the late J.G. Woodroof. A pioneer in food science research, Woodroof began his research in food science in 1929. He organized the food science department at the Georgia Experiment Station around 1940.
Events include an afternoon lecture, reception, and awards program. This year's keynote address, "The Struggle for Enough: Why Half the World's Farmers Go Hungry," will be given by J. Scott Angle, former CAES dean and current President & CEO of the International Fertilizer Development Center (IFDC).
