- 2020W: Ethics of Genetic Engineering Student Coordinator - Madina Kagieva & Faculty Sponsor - Pamela Kalas The academic focus of this seminar will be centered around learning about new exciting technologies and research regarding genetic engineering, followed by ethics-based discussions of associated inherent issues with the tools. Students will cover themes such as the ethics of Cloning Technology, Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells, Gene Enhancement, Human Animal Hybrids and Gene Drive, among others. In this peer discussion-based class, students will learn how to integrate all the genetics knowledge they gathered in other classes with the principles of justice and equity.
