Some scientists who are going to speak at a crispr conference a year from now

All of them seem pretty boring at first glance, none explicitly focusing on enhancement. Even the Chinese scientist who is in prison right now for genetically altering those twins is against enhancement (at least that’s what he said)–regardless there’s supposedly an “international consensus” that he’s a monster. This one looks kind of interesting

That’s how it’s going to go. Medical first, and if that’s effective we’ll gradually move to enhancement. Just like with DARPA focusing on supersoldiers rather than superartists.

Btw here’s a recent book on the bioethics of crispr I found.
