Next RTP-SRA guest lecture [updated 1/23/20]:

  • "Careers in Risk Science" panel hosted at NC State University on Tuesday Jan. 28th, 12 noon-1 pm, followed by lunch!

If you're interested in attending, please contact Khara Grieger for further information and details.
  • We recently co-sponsored a guest lecture by Sir Charles Godfray on Monday the 13th at 7pm (NC State, details here), entitled "Can We Feed the World Without Wrecking the Environment?"
