Jennifer Kahn, Contributing Writer, New York Times Magazine; Lecturer, Magazine Program at UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism; Former Visiting Ferris Professor of Journalism, Princeton
Jennifer Kahn will update attendees on gene editing and gene drive technologies, which are quickly evolving. She will also discuss their implications for society, extending from their use in areas such as human fertility, agriculture and pharmaceuticals. Recent developments in China, where this technology was used on embryos, has raised concerns globally on the use of these technologies. Kahn is returning to the Club after her sold out program on this topic in November to update members on recent developments. Gerald Harris, chair of the Technology & Society member-led forum, will interview her; the discussion will be followed by a question and answer session.
