Our Advisory Board
Statement of Principles
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.
In the spirit of integrity in our fields of study, we continue to refine and challenge the validity of our own views, as well as the ever-evolving conventional wisdom surrounding the impacts of GMO technology in the food, health and agricultural sectors.
