People tend to think of sharks as dangerous, indiscriminate predators. Dr. Ritchie aims to make you think differently about sharks and their benefits to humans, our ecosystems and our planet. She will also discuss some of the local sharks and their antibiotic-producing microbial partners. Dr. Ritchie received her PhD at UNC-Chapel Hill before postdoctoral studies at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama and the Scripps Institute of Oceanography in San Diego.
