Science Panel Discussion at COSI: "To Err Is Human - The Gene Therapy Dilemma"

WOSU@COSI Studios 333 West Broad Street, Columbus OH, 43215 Examine cutting-edge issues in science with COSI, the Ohio State University, and WOSU through this unique panel discussion. This year, we investigate whether gene therapy has the potential to radically change what it means to be human. We can all agree that the potential for gene therapy to fix life-threatening disease is a good thing. But what about altering future generations so that they have characteristics not found in their DNA? How far down this road should civilization go? Who should decide what is right or wrong? A panel of legal, medical, and ethics professionals address this important issue, including moderator Fred Andrle, panelists Gail Herman, Center for Molecular and Human Genetics at Nationwide Children's Hospital, and Ellen Deason with the Ohio State University Mortiz College of Law.
