Invitation to Workshops from the Royal Society of New Zealand - Gene Editing in Aotearoa

Royal Society Te Apārangi is convening a multi-disciplinary panel to consider the potential uses and implications of gene editing in Aotearoa.  Our first two discussion papers were released late 2017 on Healthcare and Pest Control.

A valuable part of this process is receiving critical feedback and we are getting in touch with you as we believe you may wish to provide a contribution to these discussions and have an opportunity to engage with our panel experts around these issues.
