The Third International Summit on Human Genome Editing will take place on 6-8 March 2023 at the Francis Crick Institute, London UK.
Building on previous events held in Washington, DC (2015) and Hong Kong (2018), the London meeting will continue the global dialogue on somatic and germline human genome editing. Major themes for discussion include developments in clinical trials and genome editing tools such as CRISPR/Cas9, as well as social, ethical and accessibility considerations these scientific developments entail.
The three-day Summit is being organised by the Royal Society, the UK Academy of Medical Sciences, the US National Academies of Sciences and Medicine and The World Academy of Sciences. Find out more about the Summit’s Planning Committee, chaired by Professor Robin Lovell-Badge FMedSci FRS.
In preparation for the Summit, a three-part series of online events was held in 2022 (Looking Ahead to the Third Human Genome Editing Summit), which focused on scientific developments, equity and access, and governance of human genome editing. Presentations for all the speakers are available on the event page.
Further information about the Summit agenda will be released soon, and registration to attend the event in person and online is now open.
