Kick-off Meeting: Association for Responsible Research and Innovation in Genome Editing

You are invited to attend the Association for Responsible Research and Innovation in Genome Editing, which will be held in Paris, France, at the Région Île-de-France – 57, rue de Babylone – Paris 7ème, on Friday 23 March 2018.

On March 23rd we will launch the international “Association for Responsible Research and Innovation in Genome Editing” (ARRIGE) to promote a global governance of genome editing. We aim at providing a comprehensive setting for all stakeholders (academics, private companies, patient organizations, citizens, decision makers) to allow the development of these paramount technologies in a safe and socially-acceptable environment. This meeting is the continuation of several workshops held with African, Latino-American and Indian colleagues, to find common means to address the ethical and societal issues raised by the rapid introduction of gene editing technologies.

Steering committee: Jennifer Merchant, Marion Abecassis, Lluis Montoliu, Bernard Baertschi, Pierre Jouannet, Hervé Chneiweiss, François Hirsch
