Reading a Newborn's DNA

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

New York Times reporter Anne Eisenberg talks about new technology that allows us to read the DNA of a newborn child and looks at the ethical questions such testing raises for parents and doctors. She’s joined by Dr. Robert Klitzman, professor of clinical psychiatry and bioethics at Columbia University, and Dr. Ed McCabe, the chief medical officer of the March of Dimes, who was active in the National Institutes of Health’s issuing of grants for research into the social, ethical and legal implications of being able to read the DNA blueprint of a newborn. Eisenberg’s article “The Path to Reading a Newborn’s DNA Map” appeared in the New York Times February 8.
