L’utilité de ce genre d’institutions est incontestable. Car le monde moderne est sans cesse confronté à des innovations, médicales ou autres, qui s’appliquent à l’homme ou à son environnement proche. Ce lieu est donc nécessaire pour préparer la matière intellectuelle qui sera ensuite transférée aux citoyens afin que ceux- ci puissent se prononcer quant à la légitimité de ces innovations.

Gene drive-based malaria control

Organisateurs:

Gene drives offer a double-edged alternative to traditional methods of controlling malaria and other vector borne diseases. The appeal of gene drives rests on their extraordinary efficiency in suppressing vector populations and spreading alterations to diminish the ability to host plasmodium.  Concerns over gene drives center on their potential for unlimited spread across borders with uncontrolled effects on the global genetic commons.  Localization safeguards offer a possible escape from this dilemma.   The proposed workshop will bring togethergene drive researchers, developers, regulators, and stakeholders to anticipate data needs and testing methods for gene drives localization safeguards.

While the global debate over the potential benefits and risks of gene drives rests on the assumption of uncontrolled spread, the workshop will specifically review on-going research and development programs that aim to develop mechanisms to control the spread of gene drives through technical safeguards. It will aim to evaluate the ability of these safeguarding design strategies to localize the spread of gene drives and provide recommendations for further research, testing and possible implementation.
