Working Party update: Genome editing

Nuffield Council on Bioethics UPDATE Genome Editing

Following the online publication of Genome editing: an ethical review in late September, the newly established Working Party on genome editing and human reproduction is currently conducting further evidence gathering. The Working Party will develop practical ethical guidance concerning the application of genome editing in humans and is expected to publish its recommendations in mid-2017.

Further information on this project is available on the Council’s website.

If you would like to receive a hard copy of the recently published review or the short guide, or have any questions with regard to our work in this area, please email or Bettina Schmietow at
