Chinese scientist who edited babies’ genes, jailed for three years

The scientist who created the world’s first “gene-edited” babies has been sentenced to to three years in prison by a court in China.

创造了世界上第一个“基因编辑”婴儿的科学家被中国法院判处三年监禁。

He Jiankui said in November 2018 that he had used gene-editing technology known as CRISPR-cas9 to change the genes of twin girls, causing a backlash in China and globally about the ethics of his research and work.

贺建奎在2018年11月表示,他利用名为CRISPR-cas9的基因编辑技术,改变了双胞胎女孩的基因,在中国和全球引起了对他的研究和工作伦理的强烈反对。

The court in Shenzen found him guilty of illegal practice and also fined him 3m yuan (US$430,000), according to the state news agency Xinhua. Two other people on He’s research team received lesser sentences and fines.

据新华社报道,深圳法院认定他犯有非法行医罪,并对其处以300万元人民币(43万美元)的罚款。他所在研究小组的另外两个人被判了较轻的刑罚和罚款。

“The three accused did not have the proper certification to practice medicine, and in seeking fame and wealth, deliberately violated national regulations in scientific research and medical treatment,” the court said, according to Xinhua. “They’ve crossed the bottom line of ethics in scientific research and medical ethics.”

据新华社报道,法院称:“三名被告人没有行医资格证书,为谋取名利,在科研和医疗方面故意违反国家规定。”。“他们在科研和医德方面已经越过了伦理底线。”
