Event Details

This lecture series features international research and policy leaders tackling grand challenges in early life health.


We are delighted to announce that Professor Rob Norman AO will present this year's lecture on:

 

The reproductive revolution and how it changed science, sex and society.

In the past 50 years, society has undergone unforeseen tremendous changes. The transformation of the world through IT, globalisation, the new wave of genetics, and the march of science and technology means we live in a totally different attitudinal and physical environment. 

One enormous change has been the reproductive revolution; starting with the oral contraceptive pill and evolving with legal termination of pregnancy, in vitro fertilisation, donor gametes, genetic diagnosis of embryos, and the anticipated ability to transform any cell in the body through stem cell technology. Our increasing understanding of reproductive biology and evolving technology has transformed animal reproduction with the ability to introduce or eliminate genes in experimental animals, the development of embryonic stem cells and cloning technology, and procreation without sex.

In this lecture Prof Norman will explore this journey, and will discuss ethics, clinical practice and consumer demand for reproductive technologies. He will also open a window to the future and discuss how further advances will impact individuals and society as a whole. 


Wine and Canapes to be served from 5.30pm with the lecture commencing at 6.00pm.
