Gabrielle Persley
Adjunct Associate Professor
Gabrielle Persley is currently the Research Project Director at the Crawford Fund Australia, with special interests in biotechnology, biosafety and their impact on food security. She was a Senior Advisor for PBS in Kenya from 2006-2011, during the preparation of the Kenya Biosafety Bill, as well as for the International Livestock Research Institute from 2002-2011, responsible for the development of a shared research facility (Biosciences eastern and central Africa), open to African scientists and students. She also worked at the World Bank, based in Washington DC from 1991-2001 as a Biotechnology Advisor, preparing and evaluating World Bank loans in science and technology. From 1988-90 she was a Biotechnology Manager at ISNAR, in the Netherlands. Gabrielle earned her Ph.D. and M.Sc in Microbiology from the University of Queensland, Australia. She was a Series Editor of CABI (UK) Agricultural Biotechnology Series (25 monographs published in the series) and Chair of the Doyle Foundation, a Scottish based charity that promotes the role of science and technology in development, especially in Africa. Gabrielle's biosafety-related achievements include co authoring the World Bank Biosafety Guidelines: "Enabling the Safe Use of Biotechnology"; authoring the International Council of Science (ICSU) meta analysis on "New genetics, food and agriculture: scientific discoveries-societal dilemmas"; and authoring a World Bank/CGIAR Publication on "Agricultural Biotechnology and the Poor". She focuses her work in Australia, Kenya, Uganda, Indonesia, Vietnam, the South Pacific, and India. What excites Gabrielle most about biosafety is that it provides the essential building block for the safe applications of new technologies that can reduce poverty and ensure food security for millions of people in the developing world.
