In anticipation of Walter Isaacson's visit as the Mary S. Stern Lecturer this year, we are excited to host a panel of experts on Genetics. We will discuss the ethics behind gene editing, a topic that will be brought to life during Mr. Isaacson's lecture as he goes into detail on his latest book 'The Code Breaker' on Jennifer Doudna's work launching CRISPR.
This panel discussion will be moderated by Andy Cullison, Executive Director of the newly founded Cincinnati Ethics Center housed at UC. The experts include, Dr. Anil Manon (Director of UC's Biomedical Program), Dr. Daniel Gurnon (Rare Genomics Expert & Professor of Biochemistry - DePauw), Dr. Michelle McGowan (Research Professor, Ethics Center - Cincinnati Children's).
Walter Isaacson will visit Cincinnati at the Aronoff Center October 6th at 7pm, presented by the Library and The Library Foundation. Tickets are only $5 and are available through the Aronoff Box Office.
