On Saturday 27 April, Dr Jeffrey Skopek (LML Deputy Director) presented 'The Harms of Human Genetic Enhancement' at the Cornel Medical School campus in Doha, Qatar. 

The talk was part of an event on Genetically Enhanced Humans, which facilitated discussion of the latest genetic technologies (such as CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing) and their potential use in medical practice. It explored what the ethically acceptable uses and limitations of such technologies might be, and considered how future research and practice could align with current legal frameworks.

The event was attended by medical practitioners, allied health professionals, and academics.
