Winter School on “Global Governance of Human Germline Editing ? Background, status quo, and future perspectives of the international regulation of CRISPR/Cas applications in the human germline”

The Marsilius Kolleg, an interdisciplinary Institute for Advanced Study at the Heidelberg University, is organizing a Winter School on the topic “Global Governance of Human Germline Editing ? Background, status quo, and future perspectives of the international regulation of CRISPR/Cas applications in the human germline”. This event will take place at the Marsilius Kolleg from November 12th to 17th, 2018.

Young researchers (Master and PhD students, early postdoctoral fellows) in science and the humanities are invited to discuss this topic with internationally recognized experts. The talks and discussions will cover a wide range of disciplines from the natural sciences and biomedicine to law, ethics, philosophy and the social sciences. One aim of the Winter School is the development and discussion of a review or position paper. Young scholars who are interested in participating and contributing to the Winter School are invited to apply online by September 5th, 2018.
