Event description

Modern stem cell and embryology research has the potential to revolutionise medicine, but some see it as ‘playing God’. Join a panel of scientists and policy experts as they discuss the latest developments in genetic medicine and whether we are ready for the ethical challenges these technologies raise.

Please note latecomers will be admitted into the gallery. 


The doors will open at approximately 6.30pm, with a prompt start at 7.00pm. There will be time for questions after the talk.
