Perhaps “Biology is not destiny.” But our genetic code is at least writing on the wall! 1997s Gattaca is a sci-fi thriller that explores what happens when society can control that writing - when eugenics and genetic discrimination are the norm. Is this our future? Expert commentary and audience Q&A will be provided by Prof. Hank Greely, Director of the Center for Law and the Biosciences at Stanford University. Dr. Greely is both Professor of Law and Professor of Genetics, and he directs Stanford’s Program in Neuroscience and Society.
