Wednesday, January 4, 2017 - No More Mosquitoes?
*Free event & refreshments*
Speaker: Dr. Leslie Vosshall – Rockefeller University, Investigator, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Robin Chemers Neustein Professor
Imagine a summer free from mosquito bites. Using genetic modification, should we push eradication to the extreme and rid the world of an annoying, and sometimes deadly, pest?
CRISPR gene editing is widely used by biologists as the DNA programming tool of choice to alter the genome of organisms and even populations. Could this lead to the eradication of mosquitoes? And is that something we would actually want to see? Join Rockefeller University professor Leslie Vosshall as she demonstrates what is— and what will be—possible.
Date: Wednesday, January 4th
Time: 4:30-6pm - Doors open at 4pm
Location: The American Museum of Natural History (AMNH)
Entry: TBD - Will be included in your reminder email prior to the event
*Free admission & refreshments*
