Biography

Rob Wager retired from Vancouver Island University in 2021 after 26 years in the Biology department.  His research focused on Genetically Engineered Crops and derived foods with an emphasis on science communication and public outreach. In his numerous articles and dozens of talks, he has provided a non-technical explanation to help explain the technical nature of modern food production to the general public.  Many of these can be viewed on his website: Robwager.com

His goal is to help explain the science of Genetically Engineered (GE) crops and derived foods, with an emphasis on agriculture and food production. People have genuine fear about this technology, but the fear is based on misinformation.
