CLI Comment on NIH Proposal to Fund Human-Animal Chimeras

The U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) has proposed lifting a ban on approval and funding for the creation of human-animal chimeras.  A chimera is an organism that contains at least two genetically distinct kinds of DNA.  CLI President Chuck Donovan and Vice President Dr. David Prentice previously published an article discussing What Could Go Wrong With the Government’s Proposal to Put Human Cells in Animal Embryos.

 

NIH solicited comments on their proposal to fund creation of human-animal chimeras.  CLI submitted detailed comments regarding the science and ethics of such research, opposing the NIH proposal and noting ethical and scientifically valid alternatives exist to satisfy scientific demands.
