NC State CERSA | Dr. Danesha Carley, 4/2 Colloquium

Currently, there is a lack of university programs in regulatory science specifically related to agriculture. There is a need for a new program that can provide undergraduate, graduate, and continuing education opportunities in regulatory science, and also provide a forum for the advancement of regulatory science in agriculture.

Biotech control strategies for vector-borne viruses | Dr. Anna Whitfield, 3/26 Colloquium

Plant viruses are a significant threat to global food security, and the majority of viruses that infect plants are transmitted from one host to another by arthropod vectors. Our research aims to understand the molecular and ecological interactions between viruses, vectors, and plants that result in virus transmission. Plus, information on Fall 2019 Margaret Atwood-related courses.
