NASEM Webinar: International Commission on the Clinical Use of Human Germline Genome Editing, Validating On-Target and Off-Target Edits

Tuesday, October 15, 2019 -
9:00am to 11:00am

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, in partnership with the UK Royal Society, will hold a webinar as part of their International Commission on the Clinical Use of Human Germline Genome Editing titled "Validating On-Target and Off-Target Edits." This webinar is an information gathering event for the International Commission. Following the presentations, Commissioners will engage in a question and answer session with the invited speakers.

The Commission aims to develop a framework identifying scientific, medical, and ethical requirements to consider as part of a potential pathway from research to clinical use — if society concludes that heritable human genome editing applications are acceptable.

Members of the public may attend the webinar with advance registration. More information is available at this event registration website.
