The Ethics of Human Gene Editing

Executive Director Professor Jackie Leach Scully will be President of the British Science Association's Biological Sciences Section at the 2017 British Science Festival

It's unusual for a social scientist to hold this role, and demonstrates both PEALS' and the BSA's commitment to interdisciplinary working and to exploring the consequences of science for individuals and society as a whole.

The festival will be held in Brighton, 5-9 September 2017 and her presidential address, on the ethics of human gene editing, will be given on Thursday 7 September, 4-5 pm.
