Genome Editing + Health Equity: Innovation and Ethics

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?

Speakers from the Personal Genetics Education Project at Harvard Medical School will address the risks and rewards of using gene editing tools to change the world around us.

September 28
3:00 - 4:30 pm
No pre-registration required.

This program is offered as part of Cambridge Science Festival. Admission is free.
