Dr. Kevin Folta

The Biotech Explosion: The best is yet to come!
Amazing Innovations in Agriculture and Medicine

Scientists work with nature to create technologies that help society become more environmentally sustainable.

Dr. Folta will join us in Saskatoon to talk about the amazing innovations that have become possible thanks to biotech tools, like genetic engineering, gene editing and genomics.

We have the technology - but consumers need to understand their value and safety.

How can we use communications tools and social media to ensure that we can actually use those technologies?


Dr. Kevin Folta is a professor and researcher in the horticultural sciences department at the University of Florida. He also produces Talking Biotech, a weekly podcast that explores how science and technology will transform agriculture and protect the environment while helping to feed a growing global population.
