Join us for an interactive discussion panel featuring a member of the Georgia House of Representatives, an FBI Special Agent, an immunologist from the CDC, a professor from Georgia Tech, and an ethicist from Emory. We will discuss what synthetic biology is, what good it can do, the potential dangers of this technology, public perceptions about the field, and other topics relevant to synthetic biology's potential role in society.
