Gene Editing Roundtable: “How do we get this right?”

  • Carmen Bain, Iowa State University,
  • Barb Glenn, NASDA,
  • Cassie Edgar, McKee, Voorhees & Sease, PLC,
  • Betsy Freese, Successful Farming

Realizing the potential of advances in genome editing means enabling society to benefit from the products of genome editing in food, agriculture, and industrial bioprocessing. Today’s program fosters a dialogue about the role of gene editing in our food, and the conversations we’ll need to have so that gene editing can succeed as a tool supporting sustainable food systems.

• What will it take to see gene editing flourish as a successful tool in the food system of tomorrow?

• What are the societal implications of these new technologies? What questions should we be asking? And where should we be looking for answers to get this right?

  • Date:Wednesday, July 10
  • Time:2:45 PM - 4:00 PM
  • Location:308
  • Session Type:Breakout Session
  • BIO Track:Advances in Genome Editing and Genomics
