A History of Embryos and Gene Editing in the Public Eye
Thursday, September 20, 2018
The New York Academy of Sciences, 7 World Trade Center, 250 Greenwich St Fl 40, New York
The History & Philosophy Section of the New York Academy of Sciences
The 2018 Joseph H. Hazen Lecture will look at examples of embryo and gene-editing research, placing it in historical context and looking at changing public reactions. With recent calls for public engagement around CRISPR research in particular, and dispute about how we understand embryos, the talk will consider questions around which public, which science, and the how, by whom, and why of engagement efforts?
