02may7:00 pm9:00 pmDisability and Biotechnology: A Conversation with George Estreich and Osagi K. Obasogie

Event Details

From next-generation prenatal tests, to virtual children, to the genome-editing tool CRISPR-Cas9, new biotechnologies grant us unprecedented power to predict and shape future people. That power implies a question about belonging: which people, which variations, will we welcome? How will we square new biotech advances with the real but fragile gains for people with disabilities—especially when their voices are all but absent from the conversation?


(Thursday) 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
