Conversations on Science, Society & the Future of Gene Editing CRISPRcon2019
June 20 - June 21
On June 20, our Chair fellow Fr. Joseph Tham will participate in the CRISPRcon 2019, Conversations on Science, Society & the Future of Gene Editing. He will take part in the Panel Discussion: The Promise and Perils of Gene Editing. CRISPR and other gene editing technologies pose sweeping implications for our food, health and ecosystems. As we contemplate the future of gene editing, how do societal narratives and personal stories of those most affected illuminate and shape critical conversations about what is at stake in using — and not using — these technologies?
