Mission Statement

We are an independent, non-profit civil society organisation, campaigning for public awareness and participation in biosciences policy.

Description

We are building a team of volunteers to help lay the foundations for an ambitious project to raise awareness internationally about the significance of gene editing and other developments in the life sciences - and the crucial part the public should play in deciding how we use these new technologies.

Our work focuses on keeping the public abreast of policy, giving the public the full picture, and fostering discussion about the broader of implications in the life sciences. We lobby government at the highest level: our written contribution to the House of Commons Select Committee on Gene Editing and Genomics can be found here, and our founder-director, Dr Edward Hockings, can be seen speaking in Parliament in the UK here. Our work has featured on many occasions in the Guardian and elsewhere in the national press, as well as Newsweek and the New Scientist.
