14th March: Genome Editing Workshop aimed at students aged 11-16 @Cambridge Science Festival
Emerging technologies such as CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing are revolutionising the way we can edit our genetic information “a la carte”. This interactive workshop, aimed at students aged 11-16, will explore the ethical considerations of the use of genome editing techniques for research focused on how our bodies age. The activity relates to the ORION project on open science.
This event forms part of the Cambridge Science Festival, a mostly free, two-week celebration of science in and around Cambridge. Discover the complete Festival Programme including hundreds more events for people of all backgrounds and ages.
