November 7, 2017 • 9:30 am – 10:45 pm EST

Main Agenda - Global Security Forum 2017

Hurtling Toward a Genomic 9/11?

Will gene editing and other forms of rapidly evolving synthetic biology create complex—at times highly ambiguous—new threats and opportunities that reshape U.S. foreign policy priorities and alter U.S. security calculations? Are we entering a new era of accelerating scientific diplomacy to get out ahead of these developments?
