Understanding Risk Frameworks for Emerging Technologies
Video from the second meeting of CSTL's Forum on Synthetic Biology is now available. The meeting was designed to stimulate discussion so as to gain a better understanding of what has been learned in recent decades with regards to managing risk in the context of emerging technologies and, specifically, how to apply that knowledge to synthetic biology.
