As a direct product of the African diaspora, I have had what I believed to be thorough exposure to African culture, cuisine and history.
I had a great opportunity to talk to my fellow Cornell Alliance for Science colleague, Nassib Mugwanya of Uganda. He works for the Uganda Biosciences and focuses on staple crops.
I recently reached out to Dr. Schnurr, as I was interested in learning more about his nuanced, critical view, and where it fits in the broader GMO “debate.”
