Duke Science & Society Dinner DialoguesS&S Dinner Dialogues, with Misha Angrist

Gene therapies have come a long way since the unfulfilled hype of the 1980s and 1990s. Today they have begun to change the lives of patients with devastating diseases, including spinal muscular atrophy, B-cell cancers, beta-thalassemia, and a rare form of primary immunodeficiency; some 800 more are in development. But with price tags ranging from the hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars, how will we afford these transformative therapies?

Join Professor Angrist for dinner and discussion on Monday, December 2nd at 7:30 pm. This event is free to attend, and transportation is available if needed.


Selected attendees will be notified via email several days in advance of the dinner with details regarding the meeting location. All dinners will be within reasonable driving distance to Duke campus.

Science & Society will also provide a shuttle for those unable to arrange transportation to the dinner dialogue location. Shuttles will depart 30 minutes before the scheduled event from the front entrance of the North Building on West Campus. Click here for a map.
