Alliance for Science Receives Grant for Gene Editing Communications
The Alliance for Science, a global communications initiative led by BTI Professor Sarah Evanega, received a $189,794 grant from the Foundation for Food & Agriculture Research (FFAR) to better inform the public about how research using gene editing tools can benefit sustainable agriculture. The Alliance provided matching funds for a total $760,271 investment.
“Much of our communications and outreach work has focused on South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa,” Evanega said in a FFAR press release. “We’re excited to turn our attention to our own backyard, helping Americans understand the pivotal role that biotechnology can play in addressing key challenges of our time.”
