Funders of the National Academy of Sciences consensus study Gene Drives on the Horizon (2016) have published a response to the report in the December 2017 issue of Science.
The study summarized “current understanding of the scientific discoveries related to gene drives and their accompanying ethical, legal, and social implications,” and was co-authored by Dr. Jason Delborne, associate professor of science, policy and society in the College of Natural Resources and executive committee member of the GES Center.
NC State’s Jason Delborne, an expert in science and technology policy and public engagement, answers questions about the emerging science of gene drives. Delborne helped develop a National Academies report on gene drives and unveil it in Washington, D.C.
GES faculty will review how the new USDA rule changes regulation of GM crops in comparison to the agency’s previous regulatory approach and in light of findings from the 2016 NASEM GM Crops committee. Diverse perspectives on the new USDA rule will be shared followed by Q and A and discussion with the attendees.
Mike Jones, Sep. 11, 2019 | The development of gene drives is progressing more rapidly than our understanding of public values towards these technologies. Findings from this research can inform responsible innovation in gene drive development and risk assessment.
The latest installment in the virtual conference series pioneered by ISGP’s “The Forum,” #NextGenFood: Innovation You Can Eat is a half-day educational program on food technology and innovation.

The GES Center, NC State University Libraries, and Gregg Museum of Art & Design will host a symposium to discuss the Art’s Work in the Age of Biotechnology exhibition. The symposium will bring together artists, humanists, and social/natural scientists, using the exhibition as a departure point for conversations about the future of biotechnology and genetics.
Andrew Moore, June 24, 2019 | Researchers at NC State’s College of Natural Resources — and around the world — are considering ways to employ genetic engineering for conservation.
S. Kathleen Barnhill-Dilling, June 24, 2019 | Mice offer an ideal genetic model for exploring the possibility of developing a synthetic gene drive in mammals. As pests, they pose challenges to human health, agricultural yields and storage, and biodiversity, especially on islands where they are not native. If research on gene drives in mice were to progress to a field trial, an island ecosystem would offer an additional level of physical containment.
Project Background Mice offer an ideal genetic model for exploring the possibility of developing a synthetic gene drive in mammals. As pests, they pose challenges to human health (through disease transmission), agricultural yields and storage,…
