The new EU Health Commissioner Stella Kyriakides wants more information about gene editing and for now, she seems less enthusiastic than her predecessor Vytenis Andriukaitis.
“At this point, my priority is to gather more information on these techniques,” she told EURACTIV.com.
“For this purpose, and following a request of EU ministers last autumn, we will be preparing a study on new genomic techniques – foreseen for spring 2021,” she added.
EURACTIV will publish the full story later today. Stay tuned for more.
