Act now on CRISPR babies

A Russian biologist has told a journalist at Nature that he wants to create more gene-edited babies and will do it if he can win approval.Who’s involved: Denis Rebrikov of the Pirogov Russian National Research Medical University in Moscow says he wants to repeat last year’s widely condemned experiment in China to create humans resistant to HIV.A Russian biologist has told a journalist at Nature that he wants to create more gene-edited babies and will do it if he can win approval.Who’s involved: Denis Rebrikov of the Pirogov Russian National Research Medical University in Moscow says he wants to repeat last year’s widely condemned experiment in China to create humans resistant to HIV.
