Human gene editing and surrogacy have opened an uncharted frontier. How we navigate this new territory will have tremendous implications for the future of healthcare as well as for how we understand what it means to be human. These technologies press us with urgent questions:

  • Who decides what makes a better human? Will only the rich be able to afford the benefits? Will this become a new and unprecedented powerful form of class control?
  • What right do we have to biohack other people? Ourselves? Will gene editing create diseases as well as heal them?
  • By using reproductive process, are we still begetting children or just manufacturing them?

Join us March 16th as we enjoy a pint of brew and good conversation with leaders at the top of this field:
