Event description

Description

The advent of technology to alter DNA in humans, animals and plants has profound implications for human flourishing. Can genetic diseases be eradicated, thus eliminating suffering? Can more productive crops be developed, thus ending hunger? What potential pitfalls exist? What does this new technology say about what it means to be human?

This is a public seminar led by Michelle Kirtley, PhD of The Center for Bioethics & Human Dignity. Dr. Kirtley received her doctorate in cell biology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and has written extensively on bioethics, healthcare, and public policy.
