BIOFOR Conference Poster Winners

BIOFOR Conference Poster Presentation Winners

The BIOFOR Conference earlier this week sparked lively debate and gave bioenergy and biorefining researchers the opportunity to exchange their knowledge and ideas. Graduate students also participated in the conference and prepared poster presentations.

The conference, organized by Lakehead's Biorefining Research Institute (BRI) and Lakehead faculty, investigated the themes of bioenergy, biorefining, and the bioeconomy.

Nearly 70 participants from Canada, the United States, Brazil, and Turkey attended the conference and commended the organizers for the high scientific standard and the excellence of the key speakers and the scientific program. Many plan to return for the 2014 BIOFOR Conference.

The conference organizers thank Cheryl Jaspers with the Office of Research for all her hard work in ensuring the success of the BIOFOR Conference.
