The Gene: An Intimate History

Gene editing technology has advanced rapidly in recent years, bringing with it new therapies for a range of conditions. But what are the implications? Join us for a free preview of the new documentary film, The Gene: An Intimate History, produced by Ken Burns. Stick around after the screening for a discussion about the bioethics of gene editing with scholars from the Emory Center for Ethics and the Personal Genetics Education Project.

Getting there: the Georgia Public Broadcasting building is near the Arts Center MARTA station on the red/gold line. Walking time is about 13 minutes from the station. Follow the signs to West Peachtree Street to exit the station and turn left on West Peachtree Street. Walk one block, then turn right onto 14th street and walk over the interstate to reach the building.
Free parking is available at the onsite garage.
