Registration open for Margaret Atwood event-related courses: WGS 350, STS 403, GES 591

Margaret Atwood, author of The Handmaid's Tale, is coming to NC State in November, and students enrolled in the following courses will participate in Nov. 15 discussion with Ms. Atwood. NOTE: ENG 588 added to related-courses list

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.

Using Stories to Examine Influence in Decision Making | Teshanee Williams, 3/19 Colloquium

Genetically engineered salmon have been approved for human consumption in the United States (US) and Canada, but have only been released for sale in Canada. In the US, opposition to the approval caused regulatory agencies to update the voluntary labeling guidance, requiring food manufacturers to label foods disclosing information about bioengineered (BE) foods and BE food ingredients.
