Genius – In this opinion piece, Ronald Green, professor of religion and ethics at Dartmouth and adjunct professor of community and family medicine at Geisel, discusses the future of genetic engineering and reproductive medicine. Green notes that during a discussion with Geisel medical students, he asked the students whether they thought that we should move in the direction of human genetic engineering, and more than 80 percent said no. “This squares with public opinion polls that show a similar degree of opposition,” says Green. “Nevertheless, ‘babies by design’ are probably in our future — but I think that the critics’ concerns may be less troublesome than they first appear.”
Joseph O’Donnell, MD, a professor of medicine and of psychiatry and the senior advising dean, has been appointed to the Elizabeth DeCamp McInerny Professorship at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth.
