Science on Tap Summer Series: "The Science of Food!"

"Science on Tap!" aims to make science accessible to everyone. We will bring a diverse set of speakers studying a range of research topics from Cornell into the community who will present their research in an authentic but also engaging and understandable way.

During our special “Summer Series” sessions you will hear from two early-career young scientists who are actively involved in the latest and greatest research going on just up the hill as they explain how their studies relate to real world issues.

So, come grab a drink, sit back, relax, get informed and join us this month for "The Science of Food: Energy resources, food waste and health!" with:

Sarah Murphy, PhD Student in Food Science
“Are you SURE you want to eat that? Food, microbes and you!”


Dr. Kathleen Hefferon, Postdoctoral Fulbright Fellow in Food Science
“How to build a better biofuel: securing food and energy resources by turning food waste into biofuel!”

Please contact Tisha Bohr at for any special arrangements you may require in order to attend this event.

Brought to you by: Graduate Women in Science Cornell & Northstar House

Funded by: Cornell's Office of Postdoctoral Studies, Cornell BEST and OISE.
