Gene Editing Poll

Gene editing of embryos is now approved in the UK, China and Sweden, and the pace of research is increasing http://www.nature.com/news/gene-editing-research-in-human-embryos-gains-momentum-1.19767 .

We are interested to know what BSGCT members think should be the limits of this research, if safety were assured.  Please fill in this short (five question) survey, so we can take the scientific temperature. We will be publicising the results through the BSGCT website.  The survey will close on 31st May 2016.
