The Center for Genetics and Society seeks to alert and engage the public, the media, leadership of civil society organizations, and policymakers about the risks to social justice and the public interest posed by particular applications of human genetic and assisted reproductive technologies. It works to establish effective and accountable public policies for these human biotechnologies. The Center focuses on technical developments and public controversy regarding the prospect of engineering the genes and traits that are passed on to future children and generations.
