Hi! I’m posting on behalf of the Alternative Protein Project at JHU to announce an upcoming alumni panel on Friday, November 3rd from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Imagine Center (113 W University Pkwy)! 🥩🌱🔬Thank you to the support of the wonderful JHU Life Design team for helping us organize this jam-packed event featuring awesome Hopkins alumni at Wildtype, Impossible Foods, Perfect Day, and the Micronutrient Forum. There will also be some yummy dinner for attendees.
The event will begin with introductions from each alumnus, along with a few general questions posed to all of them. We will then divide into breakout rooms where attendees can ask questions to each alumnus individually in a smaller setting!
ANYONE can join! Can’t join us in person? A ZOOM option will be available at bit.ly/jhu-app-zoom .
