As part of the “SNF Agora Conversations: The Politics and Policy of COVID-19” series, join us for a conversation with economists about balancing the trade-offs on health vs. the economy, some of the short- and long-term solutions, and what kinds of lasting changes to the global economy we might expect to see.

Her research focuses on economic growth and development, financial institutions and markets, innovation, and economic history.

BloombergSchoolofPublicHealth HopkinsatHome April 22, April 22, WednesdayBrought to you by Hopkins at Home Join Jeffrey Kahn, PhD, MPH, Andreas C. Dracopoulos Director of the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics, for a two-session lecture series in which you explore the ethics of gene editing. During these live sessions, you will reflect on and discuss the ways in which science and ethics are intertwined. The combination of reproductive and genetic testing technologies increasingly allow for parents to select traits in what they hope will be their future children.  This session will use the first case in the world of the creation of a so-called “savior sibling” to help illustrate the ethical and policy issues arising when new combinations of biotechnologies challenge existing limits.   Session 1: Choosing our future children April 22, 5:15 – 6:15 p.m. EDT The combination of reproductive and genetic testing technologies increasingly allow for parents to select traits in what they hope will be their future children.  This session will use the first case in the world of the creation of a so-called “savior sibling” to help illustrate the ethical and policy issues arising when new combinations of biotechnologies challenge existing limits.   Session 2: Editing humanity’s genome April 29, 5:15 – 6:15 p.m. EDT The discovery in 2015 of the ways to use the gene editing technology CRISPR-Cas9 in humans sent shockwaves through both the scientific and science policy and ethics communities, since it created the prospect of moving from genetic testing to genetic modification.  This session will examine some of the implications of a range of potential uses of gene editing technologies in humans, assessing the ethical and policy issues, and what tools and approaches there might be to create a process for International governance as we enter this brave new world. Jeffrey Kahn, PhD is the Andreas C. Dracopoulos Director of the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics, and the Levi Professor of Bioethics and Public Policy.  He is also Professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management in the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health.  His research interests include the ethics of research, ethics and public health, and ethics and emerging biomedical technologies.  He speaks widely both in the U.S. and abroad, and has published four books and over 125 articles, and is currently co-PI for the Johns Hopkins Center of Excellence in Ethics and Policy Research on Genomics and Infectious Disease (NIH-NHGRI).  He is an elected member of the National Academy of Medicine and Fellow of the Hastings Center, and has chaired or served on committees and panels for the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control, and the Institute of Medicine/National Academy of Medicine, where he is currently chair of the Board on Health Sciences Policy.  His education includes a BA in microbiology (UCLA, 1983), MPH (Johns Hopkins, 1988), and PhD in philosophy (Georgetown, 1989).manipulating-life-the-ethics-of-

ReunionApril 24, April 24, FridayUPDATE: Homewood's Alumni Weekend 2020 has been Postponed   <03.13.2020 at 2:32 pm eastern> Dear alumni and friends, Johns Hopkins University continues to actively monitor the global COVID-19 outbreak, with particular focus on the health and well-being of the university community, as well as on the continuity of university operations.  We also are fortunate to have some of the world’s best experts in public health, infectious disease and emergency management not only to guide our university response, but to contribute to the national and global response effort.     This afternoon, we have decided to postpone Homewood’s Alumni Weekend 2020. This decision was not easy to make, but we think that it is in the best interest of our Hopkins alumni, staff, students, and community as a whole.   The Office of Alumni Relations will be exploring options to celebrate a reunion with you at a later date and hope to provide those details in the coming weeks. In the meantime, if you have made travel plans, we encourage you to look into cancellation policies. If you have already registered for Alumni Weekend events, we will contact you regarding refunds.    For any questions, please contact the Reunion & Homecoming office at reunion@jhu.edu  or 410-516-5185. We will be sending out an email to our entire alumni community this afternoon regarding the change. During this difficult and unprecedented moment, we extend our best wishes for your family’s health and safety.  We know that many of you may not only be personally impacted, but may also be engaged in mitigation, planning, and response efforts around the world.  We are grateful.     While we are disappointed about this postponement, we are thankful for your patience and understanding as we adapt as a community to these new circumstances.  As this global pandemic evolves, we invite you to turn to the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center for the most up to date information and insights from Hopkins experts.  /event/alumniweekend2020
