Stembryos: The Future of Reproduction?

This event has finished Took place on: Thursday, 7th Mar 2024

 £10

As stem cell-based embryo models become increasingly more sophisticated, they also raise big questions: how do we define a human embryo and what should be the limit of such research?  

At this event in collaboration with Cambridge Reproduction, we take a deep dive into the topic of stem cell-based embryo models, an area which saw ground breaking advances in 2023. Such models have wide-reaching potential in infertility treatment and in understanding developmental disorders, pregnancy complications and miscarriage, but is new legislation required for this rapidly advancing area of science?

An interdisciplinary panel, including experts in law, sociology, medicine and science, discuss the controversies and opportunities and debate the proposed governance framework for stem cell-based models. 

Speakers include:

Julian Hitchcock—Of Counsel, Biolawgy Consulting.
Dr Naomi Moris—Group Leader, Developmental Models Laboratory, Francis Crick Institute.
Sandy Starr—Deputy Director, Progress Educational Trust; Oversight Group member, Governance of Stem-Cell-Based Embryo Models
Professor Emily Jackson—Professor of Law, The London School of Economics and Political Science.
Dr Philip Ball (Chair)—Science writer who has contributed to publications including Nature, New Scientist, the Guardian and New York Times; author of numerous books including The Book of Minds (2022).
