Walter Isaacson

on Reshaping the Human Race

Walter Isaacson has written definitive biographies of geniuses ranging from Leonardo da Vinci and Benjamin Franklin to Albert Einstein and Steve Jobs. Now he turns his attention to the woman behind an invention poised to transform humankind, CRISPR, an easy-to-use tool that can edit DNA.

The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center is proud to welcome Professor Isaacson for a talk about Jennifer Doudna, the Nobel Prize–winning scientific detective who unlocked the key to this brave new world and ushered in an era filled with both the promises — cures for diseases, immunity to viruses — and the ethical dilemmas of genetic editing, the subject of his new book, The Code Breaker: Jennifer Doudna, Gene Editing, and the Future of the Human Race.

University Professor of History at Tulane University, Walter Isaacson has been CEO of the Aspen Institute, chairman of CNN and editor of Time magazine.

Moderated by innovator and scientist Sue Desmond-Hellmann.
