NIH quietly rewrites ‘gain-of-function’ definition amid greater scrutiny of controversial research
The National Institutes of Health quietly altered a key definition of “gain-of-function” research on its own website amid a wave of major scrutiny regarding its funding of controversial research in Wuhan, China.
The altered definition received significant attention after being noted by retired Navy officer Jeremy Redfern on Twitter on Friday afternoon. Source
For those that don’t know – this is how the @NIH defined “gain-of-function” on their website until at least October 19th, 2021. Just 3 days ago.
