Dr Michael Antoniou visits Australia March 2017

Dr Antoniou, Reader in Molecular Genetics at King’s College London School of Life Sciences will be visiting Melbourne, Canberra and Sydney. He is here to discuss his concerns with a range of new genetic engineering techniques that the Federal Government is currently proposing not to regulate.

Friends of the Earth is co-hosting a series of forums with the William Angliss Institute, the Frank Fenner Foundation, MADGE, GeneEthics and well known chef and writer Jared Ingersoll. The forums will discuss what kind of futures these new genetic engineering techniques could create, the potential risks to human health and the environment, and the politics that are at play globally and in Australia.
