On January 19th, join us for Genetics: Testing, Editing and Ethics for the Future.

Genetic testing is now mainstream, and DNA altering technology is here.  What can we learn from our own genetic tests? Crispr gene editing technology is currently in clinical trials to combat cancer.  Can modified genes be passed on to future generations?

Our guests are Aaron Goldenberg, CWRU Associate Professor, Department of Bioethics and Co-Director, Center for Genetic Research, Ethics and Law with Marsha Michie, Assistant Professor, Department. of Bioethics, CWRU School of Medicine.
