At the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, a small research lab is looking into how a person’s genetics affects his or her sense of taste.

Appearing friendly and engaging, it’s easy to see why Garneau has been invited to speak at numerous venues, such as TEDxMileHigh, NPR and now Wake Forest. Throughout the presentation, she interacted with the audience, pulling examples from local research and calling on audience members by name. This seminar was part of a weekly series in the Department of Biology, bringing presenters with a range of expertise to speak on campus every Monday.
