CRISPR People: The Science and Ethics of Editing Humans

Please join the Stanford Technology Law Review and Stanford Law School for an interactive panel discussing Stanford Law School Professor Hank Greely’s new book CRISPR People: The Science and Ethics of Editing Humans (MIT Press, 2021). CRISPR People inquires what the birth of babies whose embryos have gone through genome editing means—for science and for us.

All those registered will be entered into a drawing for a copy of CRISPR People signed by Professor Greely. His book can also be obtained at the Stanford Bookstore, or from The MIT Press or Amazon.
