Find out the implications of gene-altering technology at next Science Café Cleveland

Science Cafe Cleveland LogoThe recent development of CRISPR-Cas9 gene-editing technology has made it possible to precisely alter the genes of any organism, including humans. Learn about this powerful new technology and join the discussion of the implications for science, medicine, biotechnology and agriculture at this month’s Science Café Cleveland.

Ronald Conlin, associate professor of genetics, Insoo Hyun, associate professor of bioethics and philosophy, and Rebecca Darrah, assistant professor of nursing, will present “A CRISPR way to alter the genome.”

This edition of Science Café Cleveland will be held Monday, Feb. 8, at 7 p.m. in the Music Box Supper Club’s Concert Hall (1148 Main Ave.).

Limited menu options will be available for purchase during the presentation.
