Plenary: Science in a modern world
Jack Bobo, who was recently named one of the 'top 100 influential people in Biotechnology today' by Scientific American - World View, will join ABIC 2015 as a plenary speaker on Monday 7 September from 1.25 - 2.10pm to give a plenary titled 'Science in a modern world'.
In a hot, flat, hyper-connected world science and technology have never been more important, nor more misunderstood. This plenary session will examine global trends in food and agriculture, the interplay between food safety and public perception of risk, and the key role of science communication in addressing public perceptions if we are to address the global challenges we all face.
Jack Bobo is a Senior Advisor for Global Food Policy at the U.S. Department of State. He is responsible for developing and implementing U.S. trade policy related to new agricultural technologies and working with foreign governments to address regulatory barriers to U.S. agricultural exports.
Prior to joining the State Department, Jack practiced law at the Washington, D.C. firm of Crowell & Moring, LLP. His education includes a degree in law, a Master of Science in Environmental Science, as well as degrees in chemistry, biology and psychology.
