Statement from ARRIGE Steering Committee on the possible first gene-edited babies

3 December 2018


About ARRIGE

On March 23, 2018, in Paris (France), we launched 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 was 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.


How to join ARRIGE?

The ARRIGE initiative was launched in Paris on 23 March 2018. However, the association does not exist yet, formally speaking. Currently, we are working hard preparing all the administrative and legal paperwork required to officially register ARRIGE as an international non-for-profit organization in France, with the great help and commitment from members of the INSERM Ethics Committee. In the meantime we have activated a communication channel, a discussion email list, where all interested individuals and organizations that would like to help and contribute to the foundation of ARRIGE, and/or to eventually become members of the association, are kindly invited to join. If you would like to join ARRIGE please send us a message to join@arrige.org and we will register your email address in the ARRIGE discussion email list.
