Question special
Lead Moderator

Welcome to the discussion of Charo’s important and timely perspective on stem-cell tourism and the effect of recent successes in gene editing. I want to thank in advance all the experts, moderators, and participants for their thoughtful comments and questions.

I want to start with a general question: is there any situation where stem cell tourism would be ok, such as with a terminally ill patient? And are there any instances where stem cell tourism has resulted in negative outcomes to serve as cautionary tales?
