Unfortunately, this event has ended. If you missed February's ‪#‎RTP180‬, you can check out the recap on "Gene-Environment" by our emcee, Will Hardison:

Everyone knows that breathing in things like mold or polluted air have the potential to make you sick, but did you know that these environmental agents could be impacting your genetic makeup? As scientists learn more about the connection between genetics and environmental factors, and how that connection may influence human disease, they’ll begin to develop new strategies for the treatment and prevention of many illnesses. At February's RTP 180, you'll hear from researchers located here in the Triangle that are on the forefront of this issue.

Innovation. Education. Industry. These are powerful angles – and what the Research Triangle Park is known for. At “RTP 180°,” speakers from our three founding universities, local companies and the community at-large are called upon to take the stage to speak passionately about what matters to them. The show kicks off at 6pm, but our doors are open beforehand for anyone that would like to come early.
