Walter Isaacson, The Code Breaker

Walter Isaacson

THE LIFE SCIENCE REVOLUTION & THE FUTURE OF THE HUMAN RACE

We’ve entered a new era - a life-science revolution where we can cure deadly disease, fight pandemics and make inheritable changes in human genes.  

In his only Australian interview, former CEO and chair of CNN, former editor of TIME and best-selling author of Steve Jobs, Walter Isaacson, will discuss his new book: The Code Breaker.

A celebrated biographer of geniuses, Walter Isaacson offers a gripping account of how pioneering scientist and Nobel Prize winner, Jennifer Doudna and her colleagues gave us the evolution hacking powers of CRISPR, a technology that can be used to not only read but rewrite DNA code. A discovery so powerful and versatile that it promises to revolutionise business and industries, including healthcare, agriculture, and clean energy.

Multi-award winning broadcaster and journalist, Dr Norman Swan, will interview Isaacson as he takes us inside the thrilling detective work it took to uncover this made for Hollywood race between rivals, battle over patents, and stumble through ethical minefields to redefine the world of business and the future of the human race.


INCLUSIONS:

  • 60 minute interview between Walter Isaacson and Dr Norman Swan ($0 for Annual Club & Premium Members)
  • Your copy of The Code Breaker (included for Premium Members and non-member registrations)
