The international community, led in part by OHSU faculty, has called for broad discussion on the implications and ethical uses of these techniques. How and when is it appropriate to carry out research with CRISPR and related techniques on human embryos? How should we regulate these techniques? How do we ensure all stakeholders’ voices are heard? Join the Research Week organizing committee and OHSU Research and Innovation for a university-wide discussion of emerging gene repair technologies. Short scientific presentations will be followed by a panel discussion, including opportunities for audience questions. Panelists include: Kurt Freeman, Professor of Pediatrics and Director Institute on Development and Disability, OHSU Dana Braner, Professor and Interim Chair of Pediatrics, OHSU Shoukhrat Mitalipov, Professor, ONPRC & Obstetrics and Gynecology, and director, Center for Embryonic Cell & Gene Therapy, OHSU Paula Amato, Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, OHSU Brian Cwik (panel moderator), Assistant Professor, Philosophy and University Studies, Portland State University
