Join us for this free event that discusses the potential ways CRISPR could be used to edit the human genome.

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? Who should decide? How can we maximize benefits from these scientific advances while minimizing the harm that might come from them?

Participants will engage in thoughtful conversations with scientists about important issues regarding the potential societal and ethical implications of advancements in science and technology.

No prior knowledge necessary to participate. Just bring your thoughts and opinions!
