UCD Food and Health Public Lectures 2022

Actions and Detail Panel



Online event

We return in 2022 with our popular Public Lectures in Food & Health with some new talks and a revisit of some of our previous hot topics

About this event

The world of social media provides an overwhelming amount of information on food and nutrition. Often this information can be misleading and, in some instances, harmful to people’s health. For the average person, it is difficult to know whether this information is fact or fiction.

The UCD Institute of Food and Health is an international leader in food and health research focusing on Food Safety, Food Sustainability, Primary Production Systems, Innovative Processing & Food Quality, and Nutrition & Health. Communicating sound, factual scientific-based evidence is an integral part of our work. For our 2022 series, we present a number of new topics and revisit some of our more popular talks with the latest scientific knowledge and advances in the area.

The lectures will be streamed live via Zoom. Registration is essential and a link will be sent in advance of each lecture with login details.
