Genome Engineering and Its Applications Including Legal and Ethical Issues @ Osgoode Hall Law School, Room 1005 (The Moot Court)
Nov 23 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

A presentation by Professor Ronald E. Pearlman, PhD.

Sponsored by the York Collegium for Practical Ethics and the York Centre for Public Policy and Law.

Recent advances in molecular biology focused on genome science leading to the ability to precisely manipulate and edit genomes, has been a spectacular advance in the life sciences and is a revolution in biomedical science with profound applications and implications in all areas of the life sciences including medicine, biotechnology, plant, and animal science. The technology for genome editing, referred to as 'CRISPR', has developed very recently from basic studies on adaptive immunity in bacteria; how bacteria protect themselves from viral infection. Many of the applications of genome editing, in medicine (e.g. ‘personalized medicine’) and in other areas, have important ethical consequences that must be considered in the development and use of the technology. We will discuss the scientific foundation of the technology and introduce some of its applications, as well as discussing legal and ethical implications for the use of the technology.

Light lunch and refreshments will be provided.

RSVP to ianstedman@osgoode.yorku.ca.

This talk is also being generously supported by: IP Osgoode, York University Faculty of Health, McLaughlin College, York University Faculty of Science, and Osgoode Hall Law School.
