The New York Academy of Sciences, 7 World Trade Center, New York

Speaker: Jane Maienschein, Regents’ Professor, President’s Professor, and University Professor at Arizona State University

The 2018 Joseph H. Hazen Lecture will look at examples of embryo and gene-editing research, placing it in historical context and looking at changing public reactions. With recent calls for public engagement around CRISPR research in particular, and dispute about how we understand embryos, the talk will consider questions around which public, which science, and the how, by whom, and why of engagement efforts?
