Taller de Herramientas de Análisis de Riesgo para la Unidad de Regulación de Productos de Interés Sanitario del Ministerio de Salud
Primer encuentro de trabajo de los investigadores Centroaméricanos que participarán en el proyecto REDCIMOVI.
The ILSI Research Foundation and the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) co-organized a symposium that explored how to frame and undertake environmental risk assessments of gene drive organisms in a way that will usefully inform decision-making related to their potential release.
The ILSI North America mid-year meeting combines presentations on topics of current interest with reports on progress within the organization’s new and on-going programs.
- What’s the potential of #genedrive organisms? @ILSIRF & @theNASEM explore enviro risk assessments for decision making at #genedrive17.
- Research on #genedrive systems is rapidly advancing. @ILSIRF & @theNASEM tackle next steps at the July 19 symposium #genedrive17.
- Join the conversation at #genedrive17 with @theNASEM & @ILSIRF on July 19.
- Interested in local & reversible #genedrives. Listen in to Dr. Hay @Caltech via LIVE webcast 7/19. #genedrive17 www.ilsirf.org/event/genedrives_july2017
- How do we set a #safe course for genome editing #research? Dr. Wegrzyn @DARPA tackles this topic at #genedrive17. www.ilsirf.org/event/genedrives_july2017
- Hear Dr.Hayes @CSIROnews explore the role of #data to move #genedrive risk assessment from theory to practice. www.ilsirf.org/event/genedrives_july2017
- “Are we there yet??” @cult_cognition Dr. Kahan of @YaleLawSch forecasts new #tech risk perception! #genedrive17 www.ilsirf.org/event/genedrives_july2017
- How do you integrate enviro risk & #stakeholder engagement? Listen in on July 19 1-5pm EST #genedrive17 www.ilsirf.org/event/genedrives_july2017

Gene Drives on the Horizon: Advancing Science, Navigating Uncertainty, and Aligning Research with Public Values
Research on gene drive systems is rapidly advancing. Many proposed applications of gene drive research aim to solve environmental and public health challenges, including the reduction of poverty and the burden of vector-borne diseases, such as malaria and dengue, which disproportionately impact low and middle income countries. However, due to their intrinsic qualities of rapid spread and irreversibility, gene drive systems raise many questions with respect to their safety relative to public and environmental health. Because gene drive systems are designed to alter the environments we share in ways that will be hard to anticipate and impossible to completely roll back, questions about the ethics surrounding use of this research are complex and will require very careful exploration.Download the NASEM Report
Reducing the incidence of malaria has been a public health priority for nearly a century. New technologies and associated vector control strategies play an important role in the prospect of sustained reductions. The development of the CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing system has generated new possibilities for the use of gene-drive constructs to reduce or alter vector populations to reduce malaria incidence. However, before these technologies can be developed and exploited, it will be necessary to understand and assess the likelihood of any potential harms to humans or the environment. To begin this process, the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health and the International Life Sciences Institute Research Foundation organized an expert workshop to consider the potential risks related to the use of gene drives in Anopheles gambiae for malaria control in Africa. The resulting discussion yielded a series of consensus points that are reported here.Download the ILSI RF Report
