Gene Editing &
Human Flourishing

 A summer bioethics workshop for secondary school teachers


During the summer of 2018, The Hastings Center will host its inaugural summer bioethics workshop for secondary school science teachers. Our program will prepare teachers to incorporate bioethics instruction into their classrooms by focusing on the social and ethical issues raised by CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing and other breakthrough genetic technologies. In particular, we will explore the issues raised by the prospect of being able to modify the human germline—eggs, sperm, and embryo—in permanent, heritable ways.

This program is made possible with generous funding from the John Templeton Foundation.
