    enhanced. The paper won more than 60 journalism

    "The principal aim of BioNews is to provide accurate, balanced and timely news and comment on genetics, 
    assisted conception, embryo/stem cell research and related areas. Since the launch of BioNews in 1999, 
    it has been one of the principal means via which the Progress Educational Trust (PET) - a registered charity 
    (number 1139856) whose Patron is Baroness Mary Warnock - has sought to improve public and professional 
    understanding of, and engagement with, these fields.

    In addition to explaining the science behind the headlines, BioNews covers the political, legal, ethical and 
    broader social issues that arise from controversial developments. Its news, comment and reviews - available 
    for free on this website and also via its email newsletter, RSS feed and twitter feed - provide an invaluable 
    roundup of essential news and views for anyone with a professional or personal interest in biomedicine. 
    The editors of BioNews have total editorial control of its content. In producing this publication, they are bound 
    only by honest reporting and scientific accuracy.

    BioNews specialises in material that is simultaneously targeted at lay and specialist audiences – comprehensible 
    by the former, but nonetheless regarded as valuable and authoritative by the latter. It strives to represent a wide 
    range of public and professional viewpoints, and to respond rapidly to issues when they trigger media debate. 
    It also aims to contribute to the training of the next generation of science writers, by offering the opportunity to 
    write for BioNews and join its successful writing scheme."
