Hundreds of Chinese scientists voiced opposition and

questioned the safety and effectiveness of the procedure following the announcement by He Jiankui, 35, who was a

n associate professor at Southern University of Science and Technology in Shenzhen, Guangdong province.

The university terminated He’s employment contract following the incident. A team of investigators said he deli

berately evaded oversight to conduct the research in pursuit of fame and profit and may face criminal charges.

“In our view, China is at a crossroads,” the four scholars said in the Nature commentary. “The government must make

substantial changes to protect others from the potential effects of reckless human experimentation.”
