Prominent scientist and broadcaster Professor Robert Winston gives a talk on Modifying Humans — Where Does Genetics Stop? at Newark’s Palace Theatre.

History shows that humans are obsessed with their genes. Does the sequencing of the human genome really herald a new opportunity for medicine or is there a darker side that we ignore? Professor Winston will explore the ethics and the future of this prospect.

The talk takes place on Thursday, June 22 at 7.30pm.

Professor Winston is Britain’s best-known reproductive health expert.

He has presented television series including Your Life In Their Hands, Making Babies, The Human Body and Child Of Our Time.
