Sequeira’s proposal “Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis: A Procreative Right or Responsibility?” argued that given that the capabilities of the latest genetic enhancement technologies, such as PGD, which can improve in coming years, the ethical questions surrounding the procedure are increasingly relevant. According to Sequeira, these answers will set important policy precedents. “Making decisions and developing policies informed by ethics is essential in any area, from business to health care to the technology industry, and this competition supported my goal of wanting to hone my skills as a leader who is able to effect change in the world through ethical decisions,” Sequeira said.Many of the students who placed in the competition plan to continue developing their proposals.

I look forward to following the Neely Center’s important work in this area in the future.”Editor’s Notes: Fiona Sequeira is a Daily Trojan staff writer.last_img read more
