STUDENT EVENT: Medical Experimentation: Past, Present & Future Discussion

The discussion examine the various mechanisms in place to protect human subjects in the current scheme, then, through case studies, wthe new technology of gene editing (Chrispr – cas9) and the ethical issues it raises, both from Jewish and secular perspectives.
