Should We Engineer the Mosquito?
This longer forum-style program encourages in-depth discussion about ways mosquitoes could be engineered to reduce malaria transmission. During this forum, participants will learn about genetic engineering and the related ethical and societal dimensions, consider different viewpoints about releasing these mosquitoes and form a plan about whether and how to release genetically engineered mosquitoes in Mombasa, Kenya.
The program takes approximately an hour and a half.
