Discoveries, disagreements & dialogue: the ethical challenges of human genome editing
Public lecture regarding the ethical challenges of human genome editing
The dramatic evolution of genome editing technologies, particularly the advances in CRISPR-Cas9, has highlighted the potential benefits but also difficult ethical challenges for its application to humans beings. The discussions that take place today will influence the decisions we take tomorrow and this highlights the importance in scrutinising such new discoveries, and addressing ethical disagreements with robust dialogue. As part of this important task, we are delighted to present three leading experts from Stockholm, Bucharest and Madrid for an evening of engaging talks and exciting discussions.
This event is co-hosted by the Ethics of Genome Editing Research Unit, Institute of Ethics and History of Medicine and the Tübingen Forum for Science and Humanities.
The event is connected to the CIVIS Summer School on ‘The science, ethics, and governance of genome editing’, taking place during 25-29 July 2022 (University of Tübingen).
Supported by Dr. Kurt und Irmgard Meister-Stiftung and the Hans Gottschalk-Stiftung.
The event will be moderated by Katharina Trettenbach from the University of Tübingen.
We are looking forward to interested parties from the University, University Hospital and the public to participate in an interesting evening around the topic of genome editing! Please be so kind and register via Email prior to the event.
