Duke Science & Society Dinner Dialogues
Moral Considerations in Tissue Models

What are the moral considerations in tissue models, specifically related to brain organoids? When does a tissue model cross a line and exhibit human-like behavior? Can non-living entities also exhibit such human-like behavior that they might be considered for protection?

Join Dr. Truskey for dinner and discussion on Wednesday, October 2nd at 7:45 pm. This event is free to attend, and transportation is available if needed.
