Comments on the NSABB Meeting on Gain of Function

On May 5, 2015, the National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity held a meeting to review the gain-of-function deliberative process, and solicit feedback on their draft framework on the process (published April 6).

As part of that meeting, I am presenting public comment on the ethics of the deliberative process. A copy of the handout I provided to the members of the NSABB—updated to correct a couple of typographical errors—is available here.

You can also view the webcast of my comments live. I am not sure when I’ll be speaking—the public comment sessions are planned for 2:00pm-2:30pm, and again at 3:30pm-3:50pm. However, if you want to watch me give comment (or the rest of the meeting) the webcast is available here.
