Public Consultation on genome editing in humans (20/05/17 - 30/06/17)
The Nuffield Council on Bioethics is seeking views on the reproductive uses of genome editing in humans. Genome editing may offer benefits to people at risk of passing on some medical conditions by allowing genetic variants that are associated with inherited illness or disease risk to be 'edited out'. However the technique could also be used to target characteristics other than those associated with illness and health.
