Eric S. Lander
Eric S. Lander, of Massachusetts, is nominated to be Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy. Lander opens Pandora’s box when he says “we do not mean a permanent ban” on the genetic modification of children.
Genetic Modification of Children
Eric Lander, Biden nominee up for top WH science post dodged @SenMikeLee‘s question whether he supports a ban on genetic experimentation of babies — or man playing God except with very limited knowledge of the consequences

Even Progressive Women Do Not Think Lander Should be Confirmed
- News: Even leftists think that Eric Lander is the wrong person to lead the Office of Science and Technology Policy. In a lengthy article detailing the list of liberal policy priorities they want embraced by the Biden Administration, the progressive group 500 Women Scientists cited Lander’s efforts to exclude a Nobel-prize winning woman scientist from a history of the CRISPR technology that he wrote, instead choosing to highlight a man who worked for him, as reason to block him from the Biden Administration.
