Some of the most powerful technological innovations – as well as the most complex, daunting challenges – in our society today revolve around, or even stem from, biotechnology.

Word cloudThe Genetic Engineering and Society (GES) Center at NC State University serves as an international hub of interdisciplinary research, engaged scholarship, and inclusive dialogues surrounding these opportunities and challenges.

Positioned at the nexus of science and technology, the social sciences and humanities, the GES Center has taken a national and international lead in examining the technical, ethical, and societal dimensions of the products and impacts of biotechnology.

To ensure its independence, the GES Center does not accept funds from private-sector entities selling biotechnology products or services, or from advocacy groups that take strong public positions for or against biotechnology.

Therefore, your support is crucial for us to continue to be a balanced and trusted source of information and scholarship and to expand our efforts in public engagement, arts and humanities programs, responsible innovation, and research to inform future decisions about genetic engineering.
