GMO Science

We are physicians, biochemists, plant geneticists, and other scientists joined in a commitment to provide a public platform where genetically engineered (GE) product impacts are openly discussed and thoughtfully analyzed.

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.
