ABOUT CRG
 

 

The Council for Responsible Genetics represents the public interest and fosters public debate about the social, ethical and environmental implications of genetic technologies.

Founded in 1983, CRG is a non-profit, non-governmental organization based in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

CRG works through the media and concerned citizens to distribute accurate information on emerging issues in biotechnology. CRG also publishes a bimonthly magazine, GeneWatch, the only publication of its kind in the nation.


CENTRAL PRINCIPLES

The public must have access to clear and understandable information on technological innovations.

The public must be able to participate in public and private decision making concerning technological developments and their implementation.

New technologies must meet social needs. Problems rooted in poverty, racism, and other forms of inequality cannot be remedied by technology alone.
