As part of the 2008 Ethics Lecture series, Roberta M. Berry, an Associate Professor of Public Policy and Director of the Law, Science & Technology Program at the Georgia Institute of Technology will on April 7 deliver a lecture entitled “Should We Engineer the Genomes of Our Children? Navigational Policymaking in the New Genetic Era”.
Her lecture will attempt to answer whether it will be right to engineer the genomes of our future children to influence the development of their temperament, their physical features, and their abilities if advances in bioscience and biotechnology make this possible. Roberta Berry will explain why this question poses a difficult challenge for policymaking in modern, pluralistic, democratic societies and proposes how we might best respond to the challenge by what she calls a “navigational approach” to policymaking.
Roberta M. Berry has published a number of essays on bioethics, health care, and the legal, ethical, and policy implications of bioscience research and biotechnologies.
In conjunction with the lecture we have compiled a bibliography featuring books, journal articles and websites by and about the speaker and resources on genetic engineering.
