“By the end of this century, I am absolutely confident that we will have the tools for someone with the means to use this information to change the child they can have through this process,” says Dartmouth’s Ronald Green in a CNN story about the green light just given British scientists to do DNA alterations on human embryos for research purposes only.

Green is the Eunice and Julian Cohen Professor Emeritus for the Study of Ethics and Human Values and director of Dartmouth’s Institute for the Study of Applied and Professional Ethics.
