GES Center awarded half-million dollar grant to study responsible innovation of food nanotechnology

The Genetic Engineering and Society (GES) Center has received a half-million dollar grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) to study responsible innovation of food nanotechnology.

Results from this work include obtaining critical information on responsible innovation practices that can help ensure the sustainability of nanomaterials in food and agricultural applications, identifying stakeholder concerns, and highlighting key lessons applicable to novel technologies in food and agriculture sectors more broadly.

The two-year study will be led by Jennifer Kuzma, ​Goodnight-North Carolina GlaxoSmithKline Foundation Distinguished Professor in the School of Public and International Affairs, and Khara Grieger, Senior Research Scholar.
