We have all heard of GMOs (genetically modified organisms), but are we entering the era of Genetically Modified HUMANS? Recent news of the first babies born following genetic modification of human embryos has stunned both the scientific community and general public. Gene editing is very quickly being recognized as one of the most important techniques in biomedical research, with an increasing number of scientists also interested in its clinical use to prevent and/or treat disease.
Join your colleagues for a discussion on how intramural and extramural NICHD researchers are using genome editing technologies to advance science and the political and ethical implications of this work. All NICHD staff (administrative, DIPHR, intramural, and extramural) are invited to attend.
