Genome Editing & Health Equity: Innovation & Ethics
September 28, 3:00 pm - 4:15 pm
pgEd will be presenting “Genome Editing & Health Equity: Innovation & Ethics” as part of the Health Equity Day programming for the Cambridge Science Festival. Join us as we explore the intersection of science, innovation, and ethics. Genetics research is progressing at a feverish pace and increasingly impacting people’s lives and society as a whole. Can gene editing technology improve health equity or will it worsen existing inequalities? What is the impact of altering microbial, plant, animal, and human DNA on global health challenges? We will address the risks and rewards of using gene editing tools to change the world around us.
