With its potential for uses from curing disease to physical enhancement, genome editing is one of the major breakthroughs in recent years. But with its implications for human health – and billions of dollars – at stake, the ethical responsibilities of this technology have yet to be resolved.

Come and hear these three experts in their fields discuss whether we should fear or embrace this new technology:

Nigel Campbell, Ph.D., president of the Center for Policy on Emerging Technologies
Meaghan O’Keefe, Ph.D., bioethicist from the University of California, Davis
Andrew Scharenberg, M.D., who studies how to use genome-editing technology in medicine at the University of Washington and Seattle Children’s Hospital
