The Global Observatory is hosting a convening to complement the Third International Summit on Human Genome Editing. The Summit will take place from March 6-8, 2023 at the Francis Crick Institute in London. On the evening of Tuesday, March 7, the Observatory will host Toward Inclusion: Genome Editing and Social Justice at the nearby Wellcome Collection. This event will bring together experts in intergovernmental organization, science and medicine, and ethics—including several Summit organizers—to discuss the constitution of the global and of social justice in the governance of human genome editing.
