The Future of Genome ModificationJanuary 27, 2017
Did you know that scientists have already genetically modified a type of mosquito to help reduce the spread of malaria? That tidbit’s from an interesting article on UVA Today about the future of genome editing. It’s a Q&A with UVA public policy professor Randall Lutter, a faculty member at UVA’s Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy. He’s also a former deputy commissioner at the federal Food and Drug Administration. He touches on new proposed guidelines from the FDA that could prove tremendously important as scientists explore this unknown territory.
