GMOs and the Future of the Global Food Supply and Medical Innovations


Register for this Event  
For thousands of years, farmers used selective breeding to produce more plentiful harvests and increase the usefulness of domesticated animals. Today, genetic engineering allows businesses to do the same—but more cheaply, precisely and speedily. Unbeknownst to most people, the use of genetically modified organisms is not limited to agriculture. GMO technology is all around us, helping to produce life-enhancing products, such as synthetic insulin, and life-saving medicines, such as cancer-fighting Avastin. Still, controversy surrounding GMOs persists. Join us to hear our two distinguished speakers discuss the risks and benefits associated with GMO science.

Featuring Robert T. Fraley, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, Monsanto; with comments byJennifer Kuzma, Distinguished Professor, College of Humanities and Social Sciences, and Professor, School of Public and International Affairs, North Carolina State University; moderated by Marian L. Tupy, Editor, www.humanprogress.org.
