Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) convened a first-of-its-kind Senate hearing on gain-of-function research Wednesday, during which expert witnesses contradicted Dr. Anthony Fauci's public statements that the National Institutes of Health never funded gain-of-function research.


“The statements made on repeated occasions to the public, to the press and to policymakers by the NIAID director, Dr. Fauci, have been untruthful. I do not understand why those statements are being made because they are demonstrably false,” Rutgers University molecular biologist Dr. Richard Ebright testified in response to a question from Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.).


Ebright was one of three scientists who testified that gain-of-function research needs more oversight at a Homeland Security subcommittee that focuses on emerging threats and spending oversight. This controversial field of research studies how pathogens might be enhanced to cause new, potentially deadlier infectious diseases. Gain-of-function experiments involve taking a pathogen that was found in nature and altering it in a lab.


The purpose of such experiments is to study how diseases might become deadly to humans, so that vaccines and other preventive measures could be developed to control and prevent a pandemic. But critics like Ebright and others are greatly concerned that gain-of-function research can be abused to create new deadly viral diseases that may cause a global pandemic if they escape from a lab.
