CMH to spark the Dutch DNA-Debate
21 June 2019With the arrival of new genetic modification technologies - such as CRISPR/CAS9 for germline modification - the 'repair' of genetic diseases is rapidly approaching. But what do we actually think about that as a society? The Erfo Center has taken initiative to start a 'societal dialogue' on germline modification that is supposed to involve a wide range of target groups and organizations. The expectation is that, in this way, all citizens will get a chance to make up their minds on whether they think there should be limits to gene technology.
The dialogue will formally start in October 2019 and can be followed on any platform using the hashtag #DNADialoog (meaning 'DNA Dialogue'). Back to news overview
