Thursday, June 21, 2018
Orchard View Room, Discovery Building
As gene editing techniques become more refined, the possibility of editing the human genome is moving from science fiction to reality. What should we do with this power?

Join the conversation led by Kris Saha (biomedical engineering and medical history & bioethics) and moderated by Dan Murphy (Morgridge Institute).
