Lakehead University’s recently established Research Program in Biotechnology will be hosting a Biotechnology Research Symposium on Tuesday, September 27, starting at 11 a.m. in the Faculty Lounge as part of National Biotechnology Week. Biotechnology is more than DNA and genetic engineering. Biotechnology uses living organisms, or cellular and bio-molecular processes, to make new products, solve problems, or provide new methods of production. The speakers at the Symposium are:

Dr. Johanshir Golchin, Director, Goltec Inc., "An Idea That Has Always Been At Work: The Application of Biotechnology for the Remediation of Contaminated Soils and Groundwater" from 11:10 a.m. to 11:50 a.m.
