Human Enhancement and the Law conference on 7/8th January 2016 (Oxford, UK)

The increasing production and use of what can broadly be categorised as ‘human enhancement technologies’ is creating challenges for existing legal frameworks. 

This conference and resulting special edition of the Journal of Law, Information and Science, will aim to identify the legal issues that arise as a result of these developments in human enhancement technologies. 

During this conference, Didier Coeurnelle, member of the board of the ILA, will speak about "The Right to (Radical) Life Extension Considered a Human Right"

Marcelo de Araujo will apporach "The ethics of editing the human genome with CRISPR-Cas9"
