Sorry for the delay in responding. I have been away from my e-mail and the Global Network Blog for a few days.
Unfortunately, I cannot recommend a student who might be able to partner with you. However, I suggest you visit the University of Pittsburgh's Website, specifically the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs. You might be able to make a posting on the Graduate School's site. I'm confident that there are many students in the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs (GSPIA) who might be interested in participating in the contest. Good Luck!
Jeffrey Kahn, director of the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute for Bioethics, discusses the many governance issues connected to gene editing. Plus, he gives a first-hand account of an historic conference in Hong Kong last year in which Dr. He Jiankui shared his research on the birth of the world's first germline genetically engineered babies. What's the future of the governance of this emerging technology?
Astute observers of U.S. foreign policy have been making the case, as we move into the 2020 elections, not to see the interruptions in the flow of U.S. foreign policy solely as a result of the personality and foibles of the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, writes Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev. Ian Bremmer and Colin Dueck expand on this thought.
In the first in a series of podcasts on gene editing, Columbia's Dr. Robert Klitzman provides an overview of the technology, ethical and governance issues, and where it could all go in the near future. Plus he explains why the birth of genetically engineered twins in China last year was a "seismic" event. How could gene editing lead to more inequality? What could be some of unintended consequences?
