CERSA Agricultural Bioregulatory Program

The Agricultural Bioregulatory Program will be held at the state-of-the-art Plant Science Building on the Centennial Campus at NC State. A small cohort of regulatory professionals is being invited to participate in the inaugural version of this program. We believe your experience and expertise in the field would make you an excellent addition to the program this year.
In recent years, the global agricultural landscape has faced unprecedented challenges, ranging from climate change-induced extreme weather events to dwindling availability of arable land and freshwater resources. In the face of these challenges, traditional farming practices alone may not suffice to meet the rising demand for food in a sustainable manner.
In light of the importance of agricultural biotechnology’s ability to contribute to sustainable food systems, this program was designed to provide participants with comprehensive information on agricultural biotechnology and regulations, their socioeconomic impact, history, and protect the safety of the food supply. As a participant, you will have the opportunity to hear first-hand from experts in the field, engage in hands-on activities, a farm tour, and network with other professionals in the industry. Experts from university, government, and industry organizations will present on various topics related to agricultural bioregulation.
