Thank you very much for attending the HFEA Hybrids and Chimeras Open Public Meeting. We trust you found the debate interesting and stimulating.
The information gathered by Opinion Leader at the event will now be analysed alongside the findings from the public discussion groups, the reconvened public event and the omnibus survey. This information will be fed back to the HFEA who will use it and the responses from their online consultation to inform their decision about whether or not to licence human / animal hybrids for research.
I am still highly cynical about the whole thing, especially since the HFEA already recommended going ahead with such research to the government. However, the online consultation is, in theory, still going on until 20 July, so please, if you haven't done so already, go and give your views on human-animal hybrids HERE.
