Since the discovery of DNA, the scientific community have explored the frontier and extent of the human DNA. In 2012, a team of scientists discovered the possibility of editing a person’s genes by a method referred to as CRISPR-Cas9. Effectively, this method is about editing an individual’s genes to (for example) prevent viral infections. This phenomenon raises legal and regulatory issues. What is the legal extent of gene editing? Should this process be regulated, and if yes, by whom?
RWC has conducted numerous discussions and interviews pertaining to this issue. We remain vigilant to assist the relevant industries with legal support
