Programmable memories, fatherless reproduction, nano-tech implants, amphibian-powered scar treatment, brain-scanning lie-detectors, inter-species reproduction, self-determining synthetic ‘green goo’… Which of these would you wager is pure science fiction, and which currently being developed in the lab?

Tonight’s event features writers and scientists discussing the grey area between fantasy and genuine scientific research, and explores those areas where bio-medical research is perhaps moving faster than we’d like.
Hosted by Comma Press.
