About the Center for Genetics and Society

The Center for Genetics and Society is a nonprofit information and public affairs organization working to encourage responsible uses and effective societal governance of human genetic and reproductive technologies and other emerging technologies. We work with a growing network of scientists, health professionals, civil society leaders, and others.

The Center supports benign and beneficent medical applications of these  technologies, and opposes those applications that objectify and commodify human life and threaten to divide human society.

The Center works in a context of support for the equitable provision of health technologies domestically and internationally; for women's health and reproductive rights; for the protection of our children; for the rights of people with disabilities; and for precaution in the use of technologies that could alter the fundamental processes of the natural world.
