IVY Genetic Masterclass With Jamie Metzl: Sex, Death And Crispr

Exploring the mind-blowing possibilities and moral uncertainties of the genetic revolution

After 3.8 billion years humankind is about to start evolving by new rules. DNA is becoming as readable, writable, and hackable as our information technology. In this IVY Genetics Masterclass, renowned geopolitical expert and technology futurist Jamie Metzl will guide us through a groundbreaking exploration of the many ways genetic-engineering is shaking the core foundations of our lives: sex, death, love, and war. When we can engineer our future children, massively extend our lifespans, build life from scratch, and recreate the plant and animal world…should we?

We’ll begin and end the night enjoying drinks and hors d’oeuvres with your fellow IVY members. In breakout discussions, we’ll dig into the big questions together and reflect on how our future selves might reconcile these new possibilities with our own personal goals and moral codes. Look forward to an inspiring, challenging, and thought-provoking night of ideas with your IVY community!
