EMERGING BIOTECHNOLOGIES IN AGRICULTURE

April 2 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

$10 – $35

THIS EVENT IS HOSTED BY TRIANGLE BABCNC and the GES CENTER.

Hear from members of the GES Center Leadership Team, including the Co-Directors Jennifer Kuzma, PhD and Fred Gould PhD, followed by a panel discussion featuring members of the GES Center Leadership Team along with experts from industry and the UK Government on the strategic importance of the AgBiotech sector and the exciting, and sometimes controversial work going on in the development of genetically engineered organisms in agriculture.

Steve Cain, president of the Triangle BABCNC, said, “We are delighted to have the opportunity to help highlight some of the great work going on in this space in NC and to discuss some of the myths and fears that have evolved in the public domain around GMO technologies and which could derail any future (post-BREXIT) US-UK free trade agreement.”

Join us for a very informative evening with our distinguished panel along with the opportunity to network with the GES Center team, our members and guests.
