On March 23rd we will launch the international “Association for Responsible Research and Innovation in Genome Editing” (ARRIGE) to promote a global governance of genome editing. We aim at providing a comprehensive setting for all stakeholders (academics, private companies, patient organizations, citizens, decision makers) to allow the development of these paramount technologies in a safe and socially-acceptable environment. This meeting is the continuation of several workshops held with African, Latino-American and Indian colleagues, to find common means to address the ethical and societal issues raised by the rapid introduction of gene editing technologies.
