CVM Public Webinar: Genome Editing in Animals

In order to provide for a more comprehensive overview and opportunity for discussion, the FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine is postponing its Public Webinar about Genome Editing in Animals, originally scheduled for December 3, 2018, to a later date. We hope to announce a new date soon in order to accommodate significant public interest in this arena.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM), with participation from the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER), is holding a public webinar about genome editing in animals.

The live-cast webinar will focus primarily on the current scientific evidence, promising uses of this technology in animals, and the potential risks. The webinar will also provide information to all interested stakeholders about CVM’s flexible, risk-based approach to the regulation of intentional genomic alterations in animals and address common misconceptions associated with the regulation of these products. This webinar will not cover genome editing in plants for human and/or animal food.


December 3, 2018, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm ET
