Welcome to CERA

The Center for Environmental Risk Assessment (CERA) is dedicated to developing and applying sound science to the environmental risk assessment of agricultural biotechnologies so their contributions to the sustainable production of food, fuel and fiber may be safely realized.

Areas of Focus

CERA was established by the ILSI Research Foundation in 2009. CERA builds on that organization’s strengths of risk assessment, tripartite engagement, and the dissemination of new scientific knowledge. The Center’s research and capacity building projects are focused on genetically engineered (GE) organisms used in agricultural and food production.
