The Bioethics and Geopolitics of Genomics (at Techonomy Health)

New genomics technologies empower us to understand, manipulate, and even write the code of life. These technologies may produce medicine, biofuels, and bring major benefits to humanity.

At Techonomy Health: Ubiquitous Frustration and Not Enough Innovation

A panel at Techonomy Health in mid-May tackled the daunting and politically-charged question of how to redesign American healthcare.
