Collage

Spring has sprung! Which means we have another stellar lineup of speakers slated for our third annual offering of Science & Food: The Physical and Molecular Origins of What We Eat. Although the course is only open to current UCLA students, we will be posting highlights from the course right here on the blog.

And don’t forget: the Science & Food 2017 Public Lecture Series is fast approaching, so be sure to get your tickets before they sell out. Hope to see you all there!
