Event Details

Scientific discoveries have the stunning potential to change everything—from how living things survive or thrive on the planet to raising questions of what it means to be human. The impact of related discoveries therefore is profound, with the potential for transforming our lives for the better—or for the worse. Who should govern the practice and application of science? Should those with expert scientific knowledge have explicit or implicit authority over their respective discipline? Alternatively, should those without such expert knowledge have a say in regulating scientific inquiry? Good, or bad, who ultimately is responsible for the impact of what scientists create when their discoveries are put into broad use? Moreover, what is the role of institutional oversight in those decisions?

Moderator: Monique Mitchell Turner, PhD
Discussants: Victor DiRita, PhD & Heather Douglas, PhD
