How do we govern access to gene editing technologies? How will robotics advancements impact labor policies? Should the states have the right to allow citizens to try unapproved drugs?

Join Science & Society's JD/MA Program Director Thomas Williams for a discussion of the program. Lunch will be served. RSVP to Marcie George at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are due October 15th. Sponsored by JD/MA in Bioethics & Science & Society.
