Sciencewise - the UK’s national centre for public dialogue in policy making involving science and technology issues
Mitochondrial donation consultation launched
The Department of Health has launched a consultation published on draft regulations for new techniques to prevent the transmission of mitochondrial disease.
This follows a comprehensive public dialogue and consultation by the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) last year indicating that overall, the British public are keen to support mitochondrial donation treatment.
Sciencewise provides dialogue support to policy makers across government and works through the British Science Association to engage the public.
