There is an impassioned public controversy surrounding GMOs—and much confusion. The topic is especially relevant in Wisconsin, with UW-Madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences scientists working at the forefront of GMO-related research, agriculture and the life science industries having invested heavily in the technology, and new developments affecting numerous stakeholders in agriculture, business, and the public sector. However, discussions about GE crops need to move past broad pro/con statements and address the complexities of this fast-evolving field.
During this event, we will hear from expert panelists covering a range of perspectives related to this issue. We aim to increase understanding and collaboration around both the science and civic dimensions of the issue within the context of Wisconsin.
