Food for Thought: The Future of Food and Nutrition

14 December, 2021 - 14 December, 2021


How is it that a blob of slime instinctively knows what and how much to eat, yet humans can’t seem to figure it out? What can a baboon’s diet teach us about the science of obesity in humans? How do our genes, diet and microbiome work together to inform our risk of disease?

Join us to explore the big questions in the final instalment of Food for Thought 2021. The event will be held online and at the Shine Dome in Canberra.
