From Botox to bionic limbs, the human body is more upgradable than ever. But how much can we alter and still be human? What do we gain or lose in the process?

The award-winning documentary Fixed: The Science/Fiction of Human Enhancement explores the social impact of human biotechnologies. Haunting and humorous, poignant and political, Fixed rethinks “disability” and “normalcy” by exploring technologies that promise to change our bodies and minds forever.

Join us for a discussion about the ethics of gene editing and disability.

This event is part of the Gene Editing Science Lecture Series.
