NCCR Molecular Systems Engineering organizes events featuring presentations and talks from experts in various scientific fields as well as known guests from arts, politics and the private sector, providing insights that go beyond science.
1st International Conference Ethics of Engineering Life
26 - 27 September 2022, Rome, Italy
The engineering of molecular and cellular systems for clinical applications capitalizes on the unique competences achieved worldwide within the past 10 years. Big leaps towards applying engineering principles to clinics and to restore body functions are provided by the development of gene-based and cell-based therapies. To address the ethical aspects of such attempts towards engineering life, this conference brings together stakeholders in developing and applying approaches to edit and control living systems, clinicians applying such procedures, ethicists, philosophers, historians and the cultural sector addressing such applications, and other relevant representatives of our global society. The conference is organized by NCCR MSE; Pontifical Academy for Life, Vatican City; and Bambino Gesù Children's Hospital, Italy. > Read more
