GMOScience.org is a core communication platform and educational “hub” for science-based information about the impacts of genetically engineered crops and food to human and ecological health. GMOScience.org takes a balanced, inquiry- and reference- based scientific approach and is an independent resource designed to provide scientists, health professionals, journalists, elected officials, food system advocates and consumers with solid information. GMOScience.org is still in a pre-launch alpha stage of release.
Leadership and Experts
As experts in science, medicine, and agronomy, we have come together to evaluate the data on the pros and cons of genetically modified organisms (GMO) through an expert review process. We do this within the greater context of the relationships between GMOs and the global ecological and food systems. We are physicians, biochemists, plant geneticists, and other scientists joined in a commitment to provide a public platform where genetically engineered (GE) crop and food impacts are openly discussed and thoughtfully analyzed.
How We Work
We strive to develop an evidence-based framework for evaluating the impacts of food systems reliant on GE technology on ecosystems and on human health. We do this by drawing upon insights emerging among health care practitioners and researchers on the linkages between food and dietary choices, and health outcomes. We hope that our focus on cutting-edge discoveries in health and the environmental sciences will guide consumers, journalists, policymakers, scientists, and healthcare providers toward deeper understanding of the costs, risks, and benefits of GE crops and foods derived from genetic engineering.
