Portland Community Conversation Series
Health Solution or pandora's box: population-based genetic engineering
Facilitated by Jon Hennebold, PhD, Oregon Health and Sciences University
Last year we featured a Conversation about the quandary of using CRISPR-cas9 to modify human DNA. THIS event will examine the quandary of using gene drives to spread genetic changes throughout a population. We will discuss the science, the timeline of implementation and of course questions about environmental impacts.
