The Center for Bioethics & Human Dignity's
24th Annual Summer Conference
Genetic & Reproductive Technologies
Synthetic gametes and 3-parent embryos, prenatal screening, CRISPR, IVF: Genetic and reproductive technologies continue to advance at breakneck speed, often without consideration of their underlying values. Many of the fundamental questions remain unanswered (and even unasked) about these developments. What does it mean to be human? Does the instrumental making (and remaking) of humans distort our understanding of what it means to be human? In what ways do these new technologies benefit us?
Join us as we explore current genetic and reproductive technologies with consideration of the ethical and theological implications for our individual and common humanity.
