Last week, a four-page briefing document for MPs and Peers, aka a POSTnote, co-authored by Amarpreet Kaur (now a 3rd year PhD Student with ReproSoc) was published by the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST) where she undertook a fellowship last year.

The POSTnote on Human Germline Genome Editing provides an overview of the science, legislation and ethical issues that surround this advancing technology, and highlights gaps in current UK legislation. Fortunately, Amarpreet’s research is also focused on this topic so she was able to reference some of her own findings from her PhD research in the POSTnote.

Amarpreet’s PhD research is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, who also kindly funded her fellowship in support of the UKRI’s Policy Internships Scheme.
