Science on Tap is a science lecture series where you can sit back, enjoy a pint, and laugh while you learn. Listen to experts talk about the science in your neighborhood and around the world. You don’t have to be a science geek to have fun—all you need is a thirst for knowledge!

Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are all over the news these days, and it’s hard to separate the fact from the fiction. Some people would have you believe that they are dangerous for humans, while others insist that they’re perfectly safe and are the best way to cure world hunger. How do you know what’s true? At this Science on Tap, Steven Sylvester, PhD, toxicologist and associate professor in the school of molecular biosciences at WSU Vancouver, will give a historical perspective of the controversies surrounding GMOs, the regulations, and the hype. He’ll discuss how science already plays a role in where our food comes from, and will arm you with data so that you can make the most informed decisions when choosing food for you and your family.
