Abstract:
Thomas H. Murray, president of the Hastings Center, and Gregory Kaebnick, a research scholar and editor of the Hastings Center Report, have both testified about synthetic biology before the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues and are available for comment on its new report.

Bioethicists who testified before Presidential Commission available to comment on synthetic biology report

Garrison, NY | Posted on December 16th, 2010

Kaebnick also testified before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce following the J. Craig Venter Group's announcement in May of the creation of the first self-replicating cell with a synthetic genome.

Murray and Kaebnick are leading the Hastings Center's project on ethical issues in synthetic biology, funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. The Hastings Center's resource center on synthetic biology, including links to videos of testimony to the Presidential Commission and House Committee, as well as various related publications, can be found at:
