Royal Society Te Apārangi is convening a multi-disciplinary panel to consider the potential uses and implications of gene editing in Aotearoa. Our first two discussion paper were released late 2017 on Healthcare and Pest Control.
We are now looking to develop scenarios around the implications of gene editing in the primary industries, and a valuable part of this process is receiving feedback from those involved in these sectors.
We are getting in touch with you as we believe you may wish to provide a contribution to these discussions. If you are interested in taking part by attending one of these workshops, please register to confirm your attendance.
Hamilton | Wednesday 10 October 9:45am – 2:30pm
Napier | Monday 15 October 9:45am – 2:30pm
Dunedin | Tuesday 23 October 10:00am – 2:30pm
We would warmly welcome your participation as we consider the social, ethical, cultural, legal, scientific and economic challenges to New Zealand of gene editing technology.
