Meet our Biotechnology Experts

GMO Answers is committed to finding the best expert to answer your question. Depending on the nature of your question, the answer may be provided by an independent expert, industry organization, the GMO Answers Community Manager or an expert from a member company.

Independent Experts will solicit feedback from experts across a wide range of disciplines in order to provide consumers with balanced, fact-based responses to their questions. The expert resources we’ve identified include conventional and organic farmers, agribusiness experts, scientists, academics, medical doctors and nutritionists from a wide range of studies. These are the leaders in their fields, respected for their subject matter expertise and their unique insights. They are not affiliated with the Council for Biotechnology Information or its member companies, but have volunteered to address questions because they believe in transparency and consumers’ rights to make informed choices about the food they serve to their families
