Lectures by world-leading scientists will be followed by discussions about scientific possibilities, absence of clear regulations on emerging technologies and ethical dilemmas.

- What if we could engineer complete embryos from stem cells and develop these in an artificial uterus? We will explore the science which is now making this a reality and discuss the ethical implications.
