Redesigning Humans - Our Inevitable Genetic Future

10/7/2002; 79 minutes

UC Santa Barbara presents this Humanitas Series lecture featuring Dr. Gregory Stock, Director of the Program on Medicine, Technology and Society at UCLA's School of Medicine. Dr. Stock discusses his latest book, "Redesigning Humans - Our Inevitable Genetic Future" which touches upon the immensity of what is occurring in bio-genetics, as well as looking far beyond a future of cloning people. Stock postulates that as scientists rapidly improve their ability to identify, screen and manipulate genes, people will want to protect their future children from diseases, help them live longer and even influence their looks and abilities.
