Event description: 

Josephine is an expert on the ethical, legal, and policy implications of biomedical technologies, particularly as used in human reproduction, psychiatry, genetics, and neuroscience. Some of her current projects address the ethical implications of new kinds of prenatal genetic tests, the relationship between gene editing technologies and understandings of human flourishing, and, with colleagues at University of California, San Francisco, the potential use of genetic sequencing technology in newborns. She is a New Zealand-trained lawyer with a master’s degree in bioethics and health law from the University of Otago. In 2003, she joined the staff of The Hastings Center as a research scholar and became director of research in 2012. Many of you know the Hastings Center as the nation’s preeminent bioethics think tank.
As always, there will be good food and drink, and plenty of time for audience discussion after the presentation. Please let us know if you plan to attend by contacting karen.kolb@yale.edu by 9/6/16.
