In 2017, we had various titans from the field of Genetic Engineering who spoke at the Conference. Sir Ian Wilmut, of the Dolly the sheep fame, and Prof. Theodore Friedmann, the father of gene therapy, started off the conference on the first day. On the second day, we were pleased to welcome speakers from the industry and the clinics to explain us better how Genetic Engineering is currently already being used. On the last day, we had a very interesting Panel Discussion a focus on Ethics. The entire lecture series on Genetic Engineering had been planned with two things in mind: practical knowledge for future doctors and a holistic view at this rapidly evolving field.
