The potential uses and impacts of gene drive technologies are a topic of growing interest in many countries at the international and national levels. A continuation of our webinar series last year, the 2022 Gene Drive Webinar Series aims to explore gene drive in its many types to show there is no “one size fits all” approach when evaluating policies’ implications or assessing gene drive risks.
On the first webinar of the series, experts will provide participants with an introduction to different types of gene drives and how guidance and frameworks need to be able to adapt to these differences.
