Abstract

The first several weeks since U.S. President Donald J. Trump was inaugurated have been punctuated by a number of Executive Orders (EO) affecting a broad range of individuals. None has had greater potential impact than the January 27, 2017, EO regarding immigration from seven Muslim majority nations. Unfortunately, these actions have had a direct negative impact on some scientists and physicians engaged in the noble pursuit of improving the lives of patients by harnessing the potential of gene therapy.
