Man creates life

Cycle D | And yet it moves! | Science and technology in the 21st century

January 26, 2011
19:00 - 21:00
5th floor - Young Theatre Workshop
The synthetic cell or the 21st-century Adam

Free entrance

The 21st century has brought with it an ever more pressing need to debate technological developments and advances in the natural sciences. Facing up to climate change beyond myths and exaggerations, the need to safeguard bio-diversity, revolutionary developments in the fields of genetics and biotechnology and the impact these will have on our lives are all areas in which we owe it to ourselves to stay fully informed. This thematic cycle will equip us with the knowledge we need to debate and act accordingly.

Man creates life: the synthetic cell or the 21st-century Adam.
Many believe the 21st will be the century of biotechnology. We need to stay well-informed about the latest achievements in this field, and how close we really are to creating life? We also need to stay abreast of the practical implications of advances in biotechnology, and the moral dilemmas they may pose.
