Genetic Engineering: The Good, The Bad, and The Necessary

September 11, 2019 12:00 pm — 1:30 pm
Webinar only

An ELI 50th Anniversary Seminar

In an era when agricultural sustainability is strained by rapid population growth and the detrimental effects of climate change, regulatory officials face increasing pressure to ensure global food security.  Gene engineering presents vast possibilities for public health and food security transformations, from the capacity to reduce the spread of disease-carrying insects to dramatically increasing crop yields. At the same time, however, many have expressed concern about the environmental, health, and ethical impacts of genetic engineering.
