DR. SEYMOUR LIVINGSTSON (Motell Foster) & his research assistant (Olivia Oguma) talk about research and gene editing ethics.

 

After three unexplained miscarriages, Libby and Marco know it’s time to get help. They turn to Dr. Seymour Livingston, a geneticist from Libby’s past, who gives them hope in the form of a cheek swab. The  DNA test reveals an unusual source of their infertility with major consequences for the couple as well as all those who share Marco’s DNA. Should they pursue further research and the possibility of using CRISPR gene-editing to have a baby -- even if it puts Seymour’s career and Marco’s genetically and culturally isolated people at risk?
