Members of Philippine justice academy visit IRRI

A group from the Philippine Judicial Academy (PHILJA) was at IRRI on 7 February to learn about the Institute's work and explore its facilities.

IRRI Director General Robert Zeigler welcomed the twenty-one delegates led by Justice Adolfo Azcuna, PHILJA chancellor and former justice of the Supreme Court. The group was given an overview of IRRI's mission, research activities, and products as well as its strict adherence to national biosafety regulations. Members of the group also had the chance to speak with some scientists on the areas of biotechnology, genetic diversity, grain quality, and nutrition during their tours of the research laboratories.
