CGS classroom visits in 2017

The Center for Genetics and Society receives numerous invitations to speak in person and via video link to high school, college, and university classes about gene editing and other related topics. Through these engagements, CGS shares a biopolitical framework that is grounded in social justice and the common good. Though we are not able to accept all requests, CGS welcomes these opportunities.

Below is a list of recent classroom presentations.
