For one night only, we are serving you dinner from the future! The main dish? Our finest pork belly, except no pigs were harmed, with a side of gut healthy chips, which are extra high in fibre. Global farming and agriculture  is constantly changing and improving to tackle an ever-growing population, climate change, and evil diseases lurking around the corner. Book your ticket today and learn about the creation of  better crops, cruelty-free meat and understand why plant diseases are such a big threat.

This Little Piggy.... Stayed at home

Daniel Knevitt PhD (Senior Project Manager, Uncommon Bio)
Dive into the Future of Food with me as I unveil our groundbreaking solution to one of the world's most pressing challenges: sustainable meat production. Join me on an exhilarating journey where science meets taste, as we revolutionize the way we can enjoy bacon and pork belly without harming a single animal.

From overcoming scale-up challenges to navigating regulatory landscapes, we'll explore the complexities of bringing this innovation to your plate. Learn how our approach not only satisfies your taste buds but also contributes to achieving net-zero emissions. With transparency, innovation, and sustainability at the forefront, this talk offers a tantalizing glimpse into a guilt-free future of delicious, meaty delights. Don't miss out on the opportunity to be part of this transformative journey towards a healthier planet and a tastier tomorrow!

La pièce de la résistante starch: making a healthy spud

Thomas Navarro (Postgraduate Researcher)
Starch is the most important food carbohydrate in the world. It is simply everywhere: your favourite bakery bread, fun-shaped pasta, and jacket potatoes are foods rich in starch! Nevertheless, too much starchy foods in our diet can lead to increased risks of diseases such as obesity and diabetes. My research aims to improve the nutritional value of the king of vegetables… potato obviously! Join me for a crispy night where we explore what starch is, why it is so important, and how we can (attempt to) make healthier chips!

The inner workings of a cereal killer

Euan Cawston (PhD Candidate)
In fields around the world lurks a killer. Its name is Magnaporthe, a deadly fungus which plagues cereals and grasses. This fungus causes blast disease, one of the top crop diseases in the world, destroying enough crops to feed 70 million people annually. At the Sainsbury Laboratory a team of researchers has been assembled to study this fungus in hopes of one day stopping its reign of terror. I analyse the tools employed by a species of Magnaporthe that infects rice with the hopes to one day find a strategy to prevent this villain from conquering our fields.
