“Regulatory and Consumer Acceptance Issues on the Road to Bringing Gene-Edited Agricultural Products to Market”
Gregory Jaffe, J.D.
Visiting Professor of Practice, CALS
Director, Biotechnology Project, Center For Science In The Public Interest
Wednesday, October 30th | 11:00 AM
The road to the market for gene-edited agricultural products will need to address both regulatory and consumer acceptance issues. What type of safety oversight is appropriate for these products likely will not be determined solely by the potential risks of a product, but also by how those products compare to traditionally bred and genetically engineered products. Consumer acceptance will depend on several factors, including who benefits from gene-edited products, the level of transparency surrounding those products, and the influence of products developed using gene-editing in the health and environmental areas. This talk will explore these issues and provide both a domestic and international view of bumps that may arise in the road to market for gene-edited agricultural products.
