Mahlet Mesfin, a member of Joe Biden's transition review team, advocated for U.S. and China collaboration on scientific endeavors including "gene editing" in response to coronavirus. 

Mesfin, an alum of the Obama administration’s National Security and International Affairs branch of the Office of Science and Technology Policy, also served as a visiting scholar at the University of Pennsylvania’s Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement.

Now Mesfin finds herself on the Biden transition team, heading the Art and Humanities agency review team.

Mesfin, however, has advocated for closer scientific ties between the Chinese Communist Party and the U.S., penning an op-ed entitled “Why the Nobel Prize shows the US and China need to work together on gene editing.”
