A Pause in Funding Certain Types of Gain-of-Function Research
The White House announced today that U.S. government agencies will institute a pause in the funding of new “gain-of-function” research on influenza, SARS, and MERS viruses that could increase the pathogenicity or transmissibility to mammals (also see NIH Guide Notice NOT-OD-15-011). During this funding pause, the government will carry out a deliberative process to assess the risks and benefits of such studies and will develop a new Federal policy regarding the funding of this research. For those of you who may not be familiar with this topic, gain-of-function research refers to any modification of a biological ...
