NIST Genome Editing Workshop

Targeted genome editing technologies are being leveraged across many sectors including in the development of novel therapeutics. On Friday, May 3, 2019, NIST will host and convene a one-day public workshop with stakeholders across industry, academia, non-profit, and government to discuss industry-wide measurement challenges and potential standards solutions for genome editing technologies, particularly for the development of human therapeutic products.  The outcomes of this workshop will inform participants on measurement challenges, technology advancements, and progress of the  NIST Genome Editing Consortium (now accepting members) on the path towards supporting and developing tools and solutions for genome editing in research and commercial products.

NON U.S. CITIZENS PLEASE NOTE: All foreign national visitors who do not have permanent resident status and who wish to register for the above meeting must supply additional information. Failure to provide this information prior to arrival will result, at a minimum, in significant delays in entering the facility. Authority to gather this information is derived from United States Department of Commerce Department Administrative Order (DAO) number 207-12.

NOTE: Effective July 21, 2014, under the REAL ID Act of 2005, agencies, including NIST, can only accept a state-issued driver's license or identification card from states that are REAL ID compliant or have an extension. See the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) site for the current compliance list

NIST currently accepts other forms of federally issued identification in lieu of a state-issued driver's license, such as a valid passport, passport card, DOD's Common Access Card (CAC), Veterans ID, Federal Agency HSPD-12 IDs, Military Dependents ID, Transportation Workers Identification Credential (TWIC), and TSA Trusted Traveler ID. 

In addition, The Police Services Group will mirror procedures in use by the DOC Office of Security and Department of Homeland Security/Federal Protective Services. Visitors with state licenses not in compliance with the REAL ID requirements may be admitted to campus provided the sponsoring NIST employee meets the visitor at the Visitor 's Center on arrival and provides escort while the visitor is on site.
