The Third International Summit on Human Genome Editing will take place on 6-8 March 2023 at the Francis Crick Institute, London UK. The summit will be held in-person at the Francis Crick Institute, London, and  virtually.

Building on previous events held in Washington, DC ( 2015) and Hong Kong ( 2018), the London meeting will continue the global dialogue on somatic and germline human genome editing. Major themes for discussion include developments in clinical trials and genome editing tools such as CRISPR/Cas9, as well as social, ethical and accessibility considerations these scientific developments entail.

The three-day Summit is being organised by the Royal Society, the UK Academy of Medical Sciences, the US National Academies of Sciences and Medicine and The World Academy of Sciences. Find out more about the  Summit’s Planning Committee, chaired by Professor Robin Lovell-Badge FMedSci FRS.

In preparation for the Summit, a three-part series of online events was held in 2022 'Looking Ahead to the Third Human Genome Editing Summit', which focused on scientific developments, equity and access, and governance of human genome editing. Recordings of all the presentations  are available to watch.

Further information about the Summit agenda will be released soon, and  registration to attend the event is now open.
