The VH Library will host a panel CRISPR and Genetic Editing: Uncharted Waters. Leading scientists and bioethicists from Harvard, MIT, Harvard Kennedy School, Stanford and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute will discuss the astounding new techniques that make editing DNA nearly as easy as editing an email, if you are a molecular geneticist, that is. Along with vast potential for curing disease, feeding the world and eliminating pollution come vexing issues of fairness, safety and morality.
