Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology publishes POSTnote co-authored by Amarpreet Kaur

last modified Jan 31, 2020 02:17 PM

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.

The Reproductive Sociology Research Group supports research and teaching on the social and cultural implications of new reproductive technologies. ReproSoc is based within the Department of Sociology and is part of an expanding concentration of Reproductive Studies at Cambridge, is led by Professor Sarah Franklin and has funding from the Wellcome Trust, British Academy, ESRC, ERC, and Office of the Vice Chancellor, as well as several other funding bodies.

Through art, film and creative dialogue, we consider how reproductive technologies come to play an ever larger role in the process of imagining when, how, if, and what we reproduce in our lifetimes.
