Biomedical Scinece and Research Journals | The Loopholes in Chinese Law Reflected in the First Genetically Edited Babies

He Jiankui, an associate professor at the Southern University of Science and Technology of China was named one of the top ten technology persons by the British Science Journal “Nature” in its electronic version in 2018, and he was selected because of the genetically edited babies that had received widespread condemnation both in China and around the world. The “Science” magazine even ranked this incident as the first of three scientific breakdowns in 2018.

On November 26, 2018, the team of He Jiankui announced that two genetically edited babies conducted by their team were born in China. On November 28, He Jiankui claimed at the 2nd International Summit of Human Genome Editing that two little girls who had been genetically edited, “Lulu and Nana were born healthy.” He admitted that the experimental data was leaked, and the research was not peer-reviewed. His team conducted several human trials.
