    Emerging gene editing technologies such as CRISPR/cas9 offer the prospect of eradicating genetic disease and, possibly, extending human capacities. Jackie Leach Scully will explore how societies now face difficult choices about the kinds of people we want to have, the lives we want to lead – and who makes those decisions.
