    GRACE Final Conference on 9th 10th November 2015 in Potsdam Germany near Berlin will mark the end of GRACE a research project funded by the European Commission s 7th framework programme from 2012 2015 GRACE pursues two key research objectives Firstly it aims to provide comprehensive reviews of the existing evidence on the health environmental and socio economic impacts of GM plants considering both risks and possible benefits GRACE reviews go beyond what has been done so far and are conducted in a highly systematic transparent and inclusive way based on concepts of systematic reviews and evidence maps Both types of evidence synthesis tasks have been proposed or used as a valuable tool to support policy making in many areas including medicine environmental studies social studies and more recently food safety In the context of GMO risk research and risk assessment systematic evidence synthesis methods are fairly new and their potentials were investigated in the frame of the GRACE project Secondly GRACE evaluates animal feeding trials 90 day 1 year and alternative methods for use in GMO risk assessment This is a particular topical issue as the need for mandatory animal feeding studies in GMO risk assessment in the European

  • About ISB
    at Virginia Tech Note In 1992 the Biotechnology Risk Assessment Research Grants Program BRARGP was established as a separate component of NBIAP The grants program was instituted to assist Federal regulatory agencies in making science based decisions about the safety of introducing into the environment genetically modified organisms including plants microorganisms fungi bacteria viruses arthropods fish birds mammals and other animals Since 1995 the BRARGP has been jointly administered by CSREES and the Agricultural Research Service ARS of the U S Department of Agriculture and is no longer affiliated with NBIAP or ISB ISB resources are designed to serve the agricultural and environmental biotechnology community at large including scientists regulators teachers administrators and the interested public Through its affiliation with a land grant university and funding through the research education and extension arm of USDA ISB provides a balanced view of the potential benefits and concerns of this powerful technology The focus of ISB activities is to provide value added information in a readily accessible form In addition to this internet site ISB projects include the ISB News Report a highly acclaimed monthly newsletter distributed in print and electronic formats at no cost to subscribers custom software to assist in
