    Goals / remit

GeneWatch UK is a not-for-profit policy research and public interest group. We investigate how genetic science and technologies will impact on our food, health, agriculture, environment and society.
Our aims are to:

* ensure that genetic technologies are developed and used in the public interest and in a way which protects human health and the environment and respects human rights and the interests of animals;
* promote public involvement in the decisions that are made about science and about whether or how genetic technologies are used;
* increase public understanding of genetic science and technologies;
* carry out or support research about their impacts.
