The Lecture Capture of the January 30 presentation by Vence Bonham, Jr. J. D. is now available.



The National Academies of Sciences 2017 Human Genome Editing Report identified seven principles that should undergird the oversight systems, research surrounding, and eventual clinical uses of human genome editing: (1) promoting well-being, (2) transparency, (3) due care, (4) responsible science, (5) respect for persons, (6) fairness, and (7) transnational cooperation. Each principle is essential to implementation of somatic genome editing for Sickle Cell Disease. Vence Bonham will examine the principles of fairness and transnational cooperation in the race to develop new curative treatments for sickle cell disease.  —

Event sponsored by the Center for Genomics and Society (CGS) and the Center for Health Equity Research (CHER).
