Abstract

Project Narrative ?Ethical and Social Implications of In Vitro Gametogenesis? In vitro gametogenesis (IVG) is an emerging technology that involves making an egg or a sperm cell outside of the body from a skin cell or a progenitor germ cell, an approach recently validated in mouse models. This study examines ethical and social implications of IVG by asking IVG researchers and people who could potentially use this technology for infertility treatment or family formation to share their views and questions on this future technology, and by analyzing these perspectives using the principles of bioethics. The data and findings produced by this investigation will help lay the groundwork for informed public discussion and expert debate of the implications of IVG for science and society.
