What are the moral considerations in tissue models, specifically related to brain organoids? When does a tissue model cross a line and exhibit human-like behavior? Can non-living entities also exhibit such human-like behavior that they might be considered for protection?

Join Dr. Truskey for dinner and discussion at this Science and Society Dinner Dialogue. This event is free to attend and transportation is available if needed. Selected attendees will be notified via email several days in advance of the dinner with details regarding meeting location.
