CRISPR is a gene editing tool that allows us to manipulate and control the basic building blocks of life. It can be used to cure disease, reshape the environment, and even design our own children! “Human Nature is a documentary about CRISPR’s far-reaching implications, through the eyes of the scientists who discovered it, the families it’s affecting, and the bioengineers who are testing its limits” (Goodwin, Wonder Collaborative, Inc).

Lunch Provided! Come to Coltrane Lounge at 12:30 PM

What do medical schools look for in an applicant? What makes for a compelling personal statement? How do medical schools build a class?
