Science and technology give us ways to address everything from disease to disasters. However, modern scientific research in areas such as health, food, and environment can be a risky endeavor. Sometimes it can lead to potential harms and irreversible outcomes. As research progresses from the lab to the real world, how should we address risks and uncertainties? Who decides what to research, when, and how?
