Since 2003, Friends of John Innes Centre have gathered to find out more about the past, present and future of the research at JIC.
It is free to become a Friend of the John Innes Centre, and all Friends are invited to attend a variety of events throughout the year.
For those who cannot attend the Friends of John Innes Centre events, most are available to view on demand.
March 2015 - The Lamb Lecture: Food & Civilization with Nina Fedoroff
The climate is warming. Fossil waters are being exhausted everywhere. Biodiversity is under pressure. We're out of arable land. And yet today's human population of 7 billion will race past 9 billion by 2050. In this talk Nina takes a historical view of food production over human history and a glance at current trends, asking what we need to do to produce enough food for the more than 10 billion expected for dinner before century's end, and do it sustainably.
