In April 2015 a team of Chinese scientists reported in a little known journal, Protein & Cell, the use of CRISPR/Cas9 to cleave and then repair the HBB gene in nonviable human embryos. The mutated form of HBB causes B-thalassemia, a potentially fatal blood disease. To say the experiment prompted controversy is an understatement. It was published on the heels of two high-profile commentaries in Nature and Science, both of which urged caution about using CRISPR/Cas9 and other technologies to edit the human germline; the Nature authors went so far as to recommend a stop of experiments precisely like the one reported in Protein & Cell.…

A few weeks ago I was watching the futuristic police procedural, Minority Report episode Memento Mori that focused on the predicted murder of a U.S. Senator who was supporting a bill (Steven’s Law) to permit parents to genetically engineer their children. Although a fictional universe, this issue has very real implications as demonstrated by a summit of scientists, policymakers, and science advisers from the US, UK, and China gathering this week in Washington D.C. to discuss the future of gene editing.…

During a periodic training on the university’s harassment policies today, I learned that my institution has added “genetic information” to the list of characteristics against which one cannot be discriminated. When one of my colleagues asked, “Do you have an example of that,” the presenter stumbled. After a few beats she said if someone had a gene for a disease but did not have any symptoms of that yet or an evident physical disability.

The policy change likely follows from the federal Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act that protects some medical information.…

The PBS series Open Mind has been on television for nearly 60 years. The program “is a thoughtful excursion into the world of ideas.” The December 30 episode was an interview with Dr. Maria Freire, President of the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health. The host of this show, Alexander Heffner, asked AJOB and BIOETHICS.NET to share this interview, about which he said, “it’s among our most fascinating conversations.”

The conversation is about exploring is about the intersection of biology and technology, harnessing big data to learn about human health and find cures for human disease.…
