Science for the People: A Special Hell

sftpThis week Science for the People is talking about the use – and appalling misuse – of genetics in pursuit of human perfection. We’ll speak to Claudia Malacrida, sociology professor and eugenics researcher, about her book A Special Hell: Institutional Life in Alberta’s Eugenic Years. We’ll also talk to Hannah Brown, postdoctoral researcher at the University of Adelaide, about the ethical issues raised by the creation of a genetically modified human embryo.
