Personal Genetics Education Project

Engaging with science and society at pgEd

Recently, pgEd’s Johnny Kung guest-authored a post in the blog of Addgene, the non-profit repository for researchers to share genetic tools. Johnny wrote about pgEd’s work and why we think it is important to engage diverse communities about the past, present and future of genetics. He also wrote about how he made the transition from being a bench scientist to his current position. As he writes in the post,

This kind of engagement and two-way dialogue is crucial if we as a society are to figure out the best way to shepherd technologies through thorny ethical issues, ensure that everyone will have the possibility of benefiting from the fruits of scientific research, and prevent technological advances from exacerbating existing inequalities and injustices.
