"Designer Baby" Advocate Gregory Stock Gives Keynote at Biotechnology Investment Conference

Genetic Crossroads
October 25th, 2002

UCLA professor Gregory Stock, accurately described on the business page of the San Francisco Chronicle as "[o]ne of the world's most unabashed proponents of so-called designer baby technology," delivered a keynote address at Lifescience Portfolio, a biotech investment conference held in San Francisco on October 21-22 (http://www.lifescienceportfolio.com). The Chronicle reports that Stock is trying to raise money to start a biotechnology company.

Stock’s 2001 book, Redesigning Humans: Our Inevitable Genetic Future, was given respectful attention in many mainstream publications. For an insightful review, see Gina Maranto, "Deoxyribonucleic Acid Trip," The New York Times Magazine, August 25, 2002.
