Registration is now open for the Lehigh Valley Symposium on CRISPR Implementation and Ethics (LV-SCIE), which will take place Sat., Sept 17, 2022, at Lafayette College. The LV-SCIE is an interdisciplinary gathering of scientists, humanists, researchers, students, and members of the Lehigh Valley community to discuss the implications of the CRISPR-Cas9 gene-editing technology. The day-long symposium includes presentations by students and faculty, including two keynote speakers; a facilitated discussion between speakers and attendees; and an interdisciplinary, student poster session. While the symposium will focus on the scientific background and ethical implications of the CRISPR technology, it also provides a space for engaging with complex problems through scholarly communication, collaboration, and understanding across (and beyond) disciplinary boundaries.
