SciPRIDE (June 19, 7pm, Bell): Support our LGBTQA Researchers

Monday, June 17, 2019
June is LGBTQA Pride Month and this year, for the first time, CFANS and the Bell Museum are officially celebrating the many research contributions of our LGBTQA community!
Wednesday, June 19, from 5-8:30pm, the Bell Museum's After Hours program True Colors will feature hands-on exhibits focused on color and its biological significance. The evening also includes SciPride starting at 7pm.  Hear about research of some of our LGBTQA students, postdocs, and staff in a series of 5 minute lightning talks.  Talks will include:
  • Making healthy oats even healthier
  • What is a climate-smart forage?
  • Developing a Vitamin D3 Enriched Tomato through Gene-Editing
  • Benefit Analysis of DNA-Informed Apple Breeding
  • Biology and biocontrol potential of a rust fungus affecting two Minnesota invasives

  • What’s the Frequency, Kenneth? Measuring Stem Structural Integrity using Rainbow Snap Bracelets

We look forward to seeing you there.  Please share this message within your networks.
