CIVIS Blended Intensive Program
The science, ethics and governance of human genome editing
CIVIS Blended Intensive Programme - The science, ethics and governance of human genome editing (virtual 12th June-10th July: in-person 27th-31st July 2023)
Join our CIVIS Blended Intensive Program both online & in Tübingen this summer!
Call For Applications (Deadline: February 28th)
The last decade has seen a dramatic increase in the pace of scientific development of genome editing technologies, particularly highlighted by the advances enabled by CRISPR-Cas9. One area of immense potential is the use of genome editing technologies in humans. Alongside the potential benefits, there are a number of ethical and legal issues that arise, posing challenges for the development of robust governance of this technology.
This Blended Intensive Program will explore the ethical implications of this emerging technology, noting the scientific and medical possibilities, and the various ethical and legal approaches and implications as well as the options for its effective governance and regulation. This Blended Intensive Program will combine lectures by experts in the field, alongside extensive interactive deliberative workshops, a one-day symposium, as well as activities around Tübingen's historic Old Town (including a visit to the German Castle where DNA was first discovered).
