As part of the streamlining process, the Recombinant DNA Advisory Committee has been renamed as the Novel and Exceptional Technology and Research Advisory Committee to better align with the committee’s original intention – following and providing advice on safety and ethical issues associated with emerging biotechnologies, according to a statement from Francis S. Collins, MD, PhD, director of the NIH.
