Existential Medicine #5: CRISPR – Edited Humanity

Join us this September for the next installment of Existential Medicine, on the provocative topic of gene modification. As a continuation of our first CRISPR conversation in March, we will dig deeper into the understanding of what gene modification is all about, discuss the ethical boundaries of disease and disability in a gene-edited world, and explore the shifting definitions of disease itself as the potential for an edited humanity accelerates.
