What are the hidden forces that shape what we eat? How will biotechnology and trade change our food systems in the future? Are genetically modified foods the problem, the solution, or beside the point? Can we "patent" nature? Bust through common myths and discover the real science and issues beyond the headlines in this groundbreaking conversation with experts from diverse fields. Join plant geneticist Paul Gepts, economic journalist Fred Kaufman, ethicist Paul Root Wolpe, and intellectual property lawyer Rochelle Dreyfuss for an intellectual feast about the future of food.

Venue Description: A museum for the 21st century, with a rich and storied past and one of the greatest natural history museums in the world, with over 40 exhibition halls. Open daily from 10am to 5:45pm except on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
