A discussion forum on current issues at the United Nations Organized by United Nations Academic Impact, in association with Council on Foreign Relations.
Laurie Garrett, Senior Fellow for Global Health at the Council on Foreign Relations, will speak on “Biology’s Brave New World: Looking Toward Threats to Global Health”. Joining her will be Dr. Jacob Kumaresan,Executive Director of the World Health Organization (WHO) Office at the United Nations in New York. Peter Launsky-Tieffenthal, Under-secretary-General for Communications and Public Information, will moderate the discussion.
The talk will focus on dual-use research of concern and synthetic biology. The term “dual-use” refers to goods and products that could have both beneficial and dangerous consequences, a classic example being Fritz Haber’s experimentation with the mass production of ammonia, which led to advances in both agriculture — with the creation of the modern fertilizer industry — and in chemical weapons. Synthetic biology refers very broadly to the design and creation of novel biological functions and systems, as well as the redesign of existing systems.
