PhD Student, Meghna Mukherjee, to speak at Haviland Hall on October 26

PhD Student, Meghna Mukherjee, to speak on topic "Shaping future generations? The ethics, markets, and movements of gene editing and assisted reproduction" at Haviland Hall Commons on October 26, 2022 from 3:30pm-5:00pm.


Gene editing technology like CRISPR may have potential to treat diseases, but does shaping future generations go too far?

Join brief author and Ph.D. candidate Meghna Mukherjee, reproductive rights and justice scholar Lisa Ikemoto, and interdisciplinary legal scholar Jennifer Denbow for a conversation about the societal and ethical impacts of human gene editing in the context of the profit-driven global fertility industry and how social movements can push back.

This free, in-person discussion will be moderated by Osagie Obasogie, professor of law and bioethics at UC Berkeley.
