Gene Drives:  Addressing the Environmental Advocacy Efforts to Disrupt Innovation in Pest Control

Watch Now

In this presentation, Jon Entine explores how efforts to use transgenic and CRISPR gene editing to prevent the spread of dengue, zika, malaria and other mosquito-carrying diseases are diminished by regulatory blockages and effective opposition from environmental groups campaigning for gene drives to be banned out of precautionary fears of unintended consequences.

He explores how scientists and journalists could respond to these campaigns, so that cutting-edge technology can have a chance to prove itself scientifically.
