“GENeS provides a simple and effective way for researchers to serve as a resource for journalists covering genetics and biotechnology. Engagement by scientists helps ensure that policy decisions are based on evidence, not misinformation.”
—Pamela Ronald, Professor, University of California, Davis, Faculty Director of the World Food Center Institute for Food and Agricultural Literacy (IFAL)
Working with GENeS enables researchers to connect directly with a range of journalists. We provide expertise and advice on engaging with the media, drawing on substantial professional experience of working on contentious issues.
GENeS relies on the goodwill of researchers to achieve our goals. We recognize the time pressures of being a professional scientist. Those who agree to be on the GENeS expert database receive occasional requests for help with a story with no obligation. For more information on how GENeS works with researchers, please see this document.

Public Information Officers
We work closely with communications teams from research institutions and feed into existing media relations operations. GENeS is not concerned with promoting itself as a brand and provides a neutral route through which researchers can reach the media. We are always looking to expand our network of contacts and can offer workshops or talks on media engagement for researchers or institutions.
