The work of the Bioscience Resource Project concentrates on three key program areas. Through these programs, we produce high quality scientific research and analysis and we raise awareness of the importance of public interest science and independent science media as foundations of healthy food systems and a healthy world.
KEY PROGRAM AREAS:
Program 1. Independent Science Journalism: We produce Independent Science News, a source of high quality public interest science news and analysis for food and agriculture.
Program 2. Public Interest Science: We consult, research, and publish papers on diverse topics in the biological sciences including health, the environment, agriculture, genetics, genetic engineering, and biosafety. We provide access to key resources for scientists, educators, policy makers and the public, including through the Poison Papers website and DocumentCloud access to the Poison Papers. The Poison Papers is a joint project with the Center for Media and Democracy (CMD). The Poison Papers expose chemical toxicity and flawed risk assessment and collusion between regulators and the chemical industry.
Program 3. Outreach and Education: We inform scientists, regulators, and the public by publishing in the mainstream media, giving radio interviews and webinars, by hosting events, and by speaking at conferences, universities and public forums.
