Genetic Technologies vs. The Coronavirus (and Beyond)

Thinkspot, Atlantic Council, Singularity University and Sourcebooks invite you to a global virtual event at 5 PM EDT on Tuesday, April 7, celebrating the release of the highly revised paperback edition of Jamie Metzl's bestselling book Hacking Darwin: Genetic Engineering and the Future of Humanity. CNN’s Sanjay Gupta says, “If you can only read one book on the future of our species, this is it."

Join us for an exclusive conversation between leading futurist and WHO expert advisor Jamie Metzl and Harvard superstar geneticist George Church on how revolutionary genetic technologies can help us overcome the current crisis and live healthier, longer, more robust lives. The deep ethical issues surrounding these technologies and their potential for being misused will also be explored. Atlantic Council President and CEO Fred Kempe will also provide welcoming remarks, Harvard Business School Professor Debora Spar will share thoughts, and Exponential Medicine founder and chair, Daniel Kraft will moderate a conversation drawing on questions from participants around the world

This virtual event is free and open to the public, so please feel free to invite others.

You can purchase a physical copy of the new Hacking Darwin from Amazon, B&N, or your local bookstore, and the ebook on thinkspot.

The paperback edition is also perfect for (now virtual) book clubs. Bestselling author August Cole says, “with its brilliant reading group guide, Hacking Darwin is among the best book club books ever.”

We look forward to seeing you on the 7th.
