The Nuffield Council on Bioethics is calling for young people to complete a survey on public attitudes to gene editing.

The survey’s original deadline of 30 June has been extended to 14 July, the council said in a statement. It hopes the deadline extension will yield a wider range of public responses, in particular, from young people.

Peter Mills, assistant director and lead on genome-editing work at Nuffield, said organisations that work with young people had requested an extension as those in schools and universities would be busy with examinations during the survey periods.
