The UC Davis Bioethics Program, Health System Clinical and Translational Science Center, UC Davis Center for Science and Innovation Studies, and UC North Bioethics Collaboratory present:

CRISPR Technology: Responsible Discourse about Science and Bioethics

CRISPR genetic modification technology is the latest example of 'disruptive' biotechnologies that can generate far-reaching and unforeseen consequences. At this symposium, we will explore CRISPR through various lenses in order to better appreciate its diverse bioethical dimensions and implications.

Our goal at this year's symposium is to generate conversations among a broad range of audiences: members of the public, representatives of regulatory bodies, biomedical researchers, clinicians, patients, humanities scholars, and many others. Active exchange among speakers and audience members will be encouraged throughout the day.

Confirmed speakers include: Alto Charo (University of Wisconsin - Madison), Jacob Corn (Innovative Genomics Initiative), Hank Greely (Stanford University), Ben Hurlbut (Arizona State University), Jonathan Kimmelman (McGill University), Eben Kirksey (University of New South Wales), Paul Knoepfler (UC Davis), Meaghan O'Keefe (UC Davis), Sarah Perrault (UC Davis), Jenny Reardon (UC Santa Cruz), Ken Taymor (UC Berkeley), Patricia Williams (Columbia University), Michael J. Zerbe (York College of Pennsylvania).

Co-presented by the UCSC Center for Science and Justice, Center to Advance Science in Policy & Regulation, UC Berkeley School of Public Health, Center for Science, Technology, Medicine & Society, UC Berkeley.
