We have released the Lent Term programme for the CRASSH discussion group, Food: Field to Table?

This term we will be focusing on the market forces that shape the global food system – from multinational supply chains, the impact of agricultural subsidies, to the politics of food provisioning and the role of gender and technology in driving market exclusion.

Our first session on Wednesday 13 January will conclude with a drinks reception.

We look forward to seeing you then!

Claire

PhD student in the RNA Silencing and Disease Resistance group, Department of Plant Sciences, University of Cambridge Claire's current research is on the mechanisms of RNA silencing in a green alga, a simple plant species. RNA silencing is a term that describes a number of critical regulatory pathways that are found in plants and animals and further understanding of these pathways could see the development of biotechnological solutions to issues of crop yield and plant disease.
