Salk Women & Science | Design and Discovery Showcase – October 10, 2018
The Salk Women & Science Design and Discovery Showcase is a unique event that provides a platform to communicate scientific research via striking imagery from Salk researchers in collaboration with the Waitt Advanced Biophotonics Center while also raising awareness and funds for further scientific research.
Discussions from Salk Professor Susan Kaech and Associate Professor Janelle Ayres of the NOMIS Center for Immunobiology and Microbial Pathogenesis. Hosted by Salk Senior Vice President, Finance & Administration Kim Witmer.
Plant science is needed more today than ever before to help meet the demands of a rapidly growing human population and the disruptions of climate change. The global population recently topped 7 billion and is expected to reach 12 billion by the end of the century. More people means greater demand for food, feed, fiber and fuel, placing tremendous strains on ecosystems around the world. This growing demand, combined with extreme drought and temperature fluctuations, has resulted in widespread environmental damage, economic hardship and malnutrition.
