The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine Committee on Gene Drive Research in Non-Human Organisms: Recommendations for Responsible Conduct hosted a workshop to explore the science, ethics and governance of gene drive research. The workshop was organized as part of the Committee’s information-gathering process as it prepares its consensus report.

With sessions on the scientific considerations of gene drive research, responsible conduct and ethics, perspectives on opportunities and limitations in low and middle income countries, and scales of governance, this workshop brought together leading researchers and decision makers in the field.
