Event: Gene-editing conference in Paris

12 January, 2018

Gene-editing is one of the most important and controversial topics in modern bioethics. What are its implications for our understanding of what it means to be human? What effects might it have on society as well as on individuals and families? What limits ought to be set for scientific intervention in the process of human development?

At the conference we will hear from scientists who are at the leading edge of developing and potentially using new gene-editing techniques. They will be joined by theologians from Orthodox, Catholic, and Protestant approaches as we consider Christian responses to what has been described as the bioethical equivalent of splitting the atom. The theological views are followed up with
contributions on the legal and societal issues.

When: 27 - 28 February

Where: Paris, France
