Op naar de maakbare baby?

As reports emerge from China about the application of CRISPR technologies to humans, Europe is also increasingly questioning the growing possibilities. What is allowed with inherited diseases that we can avoid? And what about gender selection when there is a clear desire by the parent for a particular sex? Where is the line between a designer baby and avoiding genetic diseases? Including Prof. Kris Dierickx (Center for Biomedical Ethics and Law, KU Leuven) and Prof. Hilde Van Esch (Center for Human Heredity, UZ Leuven). Moderation by Marleen Finoulst (Health & Science).This conversation will be in Dutch.
