今日题目—— what news are you concerning about recently?
Thanks for your question.
As a student in the College of Life Science, I pay much attention to the news inbiological technology. Recently the report of genetic editing babies caught myattention. The news is about the crazy scientist He Jiankui(贺建奎), who edited genes in humanembryos and gave birth to two gene edited babies against the ethicalregulations. What he did can not be seen as the evolution of biologicalbreakthrough but a violation of the common ethic norm, which not only caused unknown risk to the world as well as bringing shame on the whole Chinese scientist group. Fortunately, leaders of Chinese scientific fields stood outbravely to bear the responsibility and promised to investigate the casethoroughly, which minimized the negative impact in time. As far as I amconcerned, He Jiankui’s irresponsible behavior is thought-provoking. What aresponsible researcher should do is to make promotion for humankind underproper experimental design instead of performing illegal experiments just forprofit and fame. We should find out the meaning of the experiment before conducting it casually.
Also,the reaction of the leaders of Chinese science research made me have a better understanding of what a qualified scientists should behave. As a well-trainedscientific researcher with noble moral standard, we should not only be honestto our data but also should be responsible for the scientific findings and holdon the bottom line of regulations. With the knowledge we have, we should care more about the future of mankind consciously. We cannot turn a blind eye to theviolation operations but to get together to solve it appropriately. Only by regulating the use of advanced technologies and utilizing them properly can scientists better the human living environment effectively.
That’s it, thanks for your listening!
