In this episode of the podcast—our second ever video episode—we have an address given by ⁠William Hurlbut, MD⁠, of Stanford University on genomic editing. 

This is a topic that is much in the news – in fact, ⁠the United Kingdom has just become the first country to approve a treatment using the gene editing technique known as CRISPR⁠

But what, exactly is genomic editing, what opportunities does it provide, what challenges come with it, and for those of the Christian faith, how do our theological beliefs help us to evaluate it? 

These are the topics of this address.


CBHD invites healthcare and other professionals, scholars, researchers, educators, and students to submit abstracts of papers that address questions associated with our conference theme—The Future of Health: Faith, Ethics, and our MedTech World—or that engage more broadly with other foundational and emerging bioethical issues raised at the intersections of medicine, science, technology, and our common humanity.
