Lecture Series 2014: Pushing the Boundaries of Life
The tools of genetic engineering give us the power to manipulate life at the most fundamental level. In this year's Lecture Series, join the Natural History Museum of Utah for an exploration of how the genomics revolution is reshaping our understanding of life and the transformative impact it is projected to have on society.
Over the course of four lectures, we’ll hear from a genomics pioneer pursuing the creation of synthetic life, a science journalist investigating the re-engineering of animals for purposes from trivial to profound, a cardiologist exploring how the information in our individual genomes will change the way doctors diagnose and treat our illnesses, and a medical ethicist researching the ethical, social, and legal implications of genetic technology.
