The scientific community has handed the world an incredible tool: the ability to make precise edits to the DNA in living cells. These technologies could allow us to transform our food, health and ecological systems. They also raise important questions about risks, benefits, ethics, equity and more.
CRISPRcon: Conversations on Science, Society and the Future of Gene Editing returns June 20-21, 2019 in Wageningen, the Netherlands, to advance broad dialogue on whether and how gene editing technologies should make the transition from the lab into society at large. Please plan to join us for a dynamic, diverse and provocative lineup of panels, keynotes, interactive discussions and networking opportunities that consider gene editing across a variety of applications, disciplines, geographies, communities, cultures and perspectives.
CRISPRcon is a Keystone Policy Center program, and the 2019 event will be developed and hosted in partnership with Wageningen University and Research.
Registration will open January 7, and seats are limited. Visit CRISPRcon.org for more information about previous events — including CRISPRcon 2017 in Berkeley, California, and CRISPRcon 2018 in Boston, Massachusetts — and more 2019 event details coming soon.
