Chicago Humanities Festival >> Announcing: Walter Isaacson on Jennifer Doudna and Gene Editing
THURSDAY, MARCH 11 | 7:00PM (CDT)
RICHARD J. FRANKE PROGRAM
WALTER ISAACSON ON JENNIFER DOUDNA
Walter Isaacson—the acclaimed biographer of Steve Jobs,
Leonardo da Vinci, Albert Einstein, and Benjamin Franklin—turns his pen
to another transformative figure: Jennifer Doudna, the Nobel
Prize-winning creator of the gene editing technology CRISPR. Code Breaker explores the medical miracles Doudna’s scientific discoveries have made possible and the moral questions they pose.
Isaacson is joined at CHF by WBEZ’s Chief Content Officer Steve Edwards to discuss Doudna’s inspiring career, gene editing, and how new inventions affect the future of humanity.
This annual lecture recognizes the
significant contributions to the Chicago Humanities Festival made by its
founder and chairman emeritus Richard J. Franke and is presented in
partnership with WBEZ.
