Exploring Heritable Genetic Modification: The Promise and Perils of Altering Future Humans

Please join the Center for Genetics and Society for the next Talking Biopolitics, a series of live online conversations with cutting edge thinkers about the social meanings of human biotechnologies.

Paul Knoepfler with talk with Nathaniel Comfort and you about his book, GMO Sapiens: The Life- Changing Science of Designer Babies. GMO Sapiens explores in clear and accessible language the suite of genetic engineering technologies that may make possible what previously was considered science fiction: designing future generations of human beings. A stem and cancer cell researcher, Knoepfler raises broader social questions about human variation, the ethical complexities of pursuing genetic “perfection,” and contemporary policies.
