Food and Health
Public Lectures

The world of social media provides an overwhelming amount of information on food and nutrition. Often this information can be misleading and, in some instances, harmful to people’s health. For the average person, it is difficult to know whether this information is fact or fiction.

The UCD Institute of Food and Health is an international leader in food and health research focusing on Food Safety, Food Sustainability, Primary Production Systems, Innovative Processing & Food Quality, and Nutrition & Health. Communicating sound, factual scientific-based evidence is an integral part of our work.

For the past five years, we have run the successful Public Lectures Series in Food and Health. We are delighted to be back in 2024 with a series of new topics and to revisit some previous topics updating them with the latest scientific knowledge and advances in the area.

The lectures will be delivered online by Zoom Webinar commencing at 7pm on each evening. Please register for the lecture you wish to attend at the link provided below.
