      “USA’s 2018 Fellows were selected by a panel of experts in each discipline, then approved by the organization's board. They were drawn from a peer-nominated pool of over 500 outstanding applicants. This year’s Fellows come from Alaska and Puerto Rico, from New Mexico and Maine, and everywhere in-between. Among their number are luminaries in their fields and rising stars, emerging voices and long-heralded experts. What unites them is the profound respect of their peers and the excellence of their work.

Future Collaboration

Dr. Shizuko Takahashi ‘95

Former student and doctor of obstetrics in Tokyo, Shizuko will be doing research at the University of Chicago on the ethics of genetic selection.

She has invited me to join her in the lab to look at the process and work on a set of images.

“Everyone has a recessive genetic disease that could be passed onto their children. When we are able to screen for everything, and that is coming soon, it will be inevitable for parents to accept some segments of what the child inherits genetically. Parental responsibility (doing what is responsible as a parent)/procreative liberty (accepting for what it is) in whole genome screening on embryos is what I would be working on in the future.”
