Program Description

Event Details

A cure for genetic diseases. Malaria free mosquitos. Designer babies. Are these science or science fiction? With CRISPR, a powerful new tool that scientists harness to edit DNA, these may be closer to reality than we think. But how does gene editing work? What can it do? And most importantly, what should we do with it? Join three scientists from the University of Colorado as they discuss the discovery, incredible potential, and complex ethics of CRISPR.
