Place: University Room, NC State University Club

Featured speakers will be Dr. Todd Klaenhammer and Dr. Rodolphe Barrangou from NC State’s Department of Food, Bioprocessing and Nutrition Sciences. Dr. Klaenhammer holds the rank of Distinguished University Professor and William Neal Reynolds Professor, Emeritus and was the recipient of the 2007 O. Max Gardner Award (an award given each year by the UNC System Board of Governors to a faculty member of the University of North Carolina's 17 campuses, who has "made the greatest contribution to the welfare of the human race").

Dr. Rodolphe Barrangou is a pioneer in the discovery of the adaptive bacterial immune system known as CRISPR. His work has been internationally recognized as offering a major scientific breakthrough in the development of new gene- and cell-based therapies, including treatment strategies for previously intractable genetic diseases. In addition to treatment of disease with ever-more-intense focus on gene therapy, the CRISPR system may be used in food production, food safety and plant breeding
