Event description

Description

Advances in genome editing technologies are taking the world by storm. The potential and pitfalls are widely discussed by scientists and public alike, but there may be some gaps to be filled in the dialogue. Galton Institute’s Annual Conference seeks to bridge such gaps with its wide-ranging audience filling the spectrum from active scientists to well-informed and interested lay participants. The Galton Lecture has been given each year for over 100 years. This year’s Galton Lecturer is world-renowned scientist Jennifer Doudna, who has and is playing a leading role in the discovery, adaptation and fine-tuning of the bacterial enzymic DNA editing system CRISPR-Cas9. This is the latest and most widely amenable tool currently used for genome editing in a wide spectrum of organisms, succeeding a number of ingenious but less easily used systems.
