What are the ethical limits of human genetic engineering? While there may never be a firm answer to this question, it is critically important to contemplate possible limitations. Listen in to learn:
Françoise Baylis, University Research Professor and author of Altered Inheritance, joins the podcast to discuss the bioethics of human genetic engineering. The focus is on heritable human genome editing where it is anticipated that genetic modifications will be passed on to future generations. This prospect raises a number of challenging ethical questions likely to become increasingly important over time.
