Meta-Review Workshop on Human Genetic Editing

The National Science Policy Network’s 2020 Election Initiative is calling upon science policy groups to participate in meta-reviews on scientific topics to help provide insight into policy objectives around key scientific issues.

The Case Western Reserve University Science and Human Rights Coalition will host a Meta-Review Workshop on Human Genetic Editing Saturday, June 15, from noon to 2 p.m. in Tinkham Veale University Center, Room 134B.

Participants in the workshop will explore and compile policy information regarding human genetic editing, and discuss policy roles in the research and use of genetic editing.

Ways to participate include:

  • Building a database on policy resources;
  • Building a database on data resources;
  • Determining the organizations and stakeholders that are affected by genetic editing in humans and by the relevant policies; and
  • Compiling policies and legislations in the U.S.

Experts on in genetic laws and regulations/policies are invited to participate in the workshop. Additionally, the workshop is an opportunity for students, post-docs and staff of all experience levels to work in science policy.

Lunch will be provided.
