Jacob Corn to attend CIRM Workshop on Human Gene Editing

IGI Scientific Director Jacob Corn will attend a CIRM standards working group meeting this Thursday, February 4, 2016, to discuss CIRM’s involvement in human genome editing.  In light of recent science-policy initiatives, this working group is specifically being asked to review CIRM policies associated with gene editing of human germ cells and embryos, and an objective of this review is to ensure CIRM research continues to be conducted under the highest medical and ethical standards.
