Pre-Health Discussion Forum: The Right to Try

Over 1 million Americans die from a terminal illness every year. Many spend years searching for a potential cure, or struggle in vain to get accepted into a clinical trial. Unfortunately, FDA red tape and government regulations restrict access to promising new treatments, and for those who do get access, it’s often too late. “Right To Try” is legislation that allows terminally ill patients to access investigational treatments that have passed basic safety testing (Phase I) with the FDA, but are not yet available on pharmacy shelves. Attached are some papers on the issue. Please skim them before the discussion. They will provide sufficient background. This discussion will focus on the ethics and efficacy of the right to try experimental treatments.

Organizing and Writing About Your Experiences

The experiences and personal statement sections bridge the gap between a description of you as a scientist-humanitarian and the analytics provided by the admission test and academic institutions. Your target institution needs to affirm your intellectual and temperament preparedness for the investment that they will make in you. Your academics tell the story of your intellectual journey. Your experiences and personal essay are a window into your non-academic mindset. This workshop aims to help you to organize, write and present your many achievements, your reason for pursuing a career in healthcare and to explain and minimize any flaws that may exist in your dossier.

Pre-Health Discussion Forum: Gene Therapy

Current gene therapy research has focused on treating individuals by targeting the therapy to body cells such as bone marrow or blood cells. This type of gene therapy cannot be passed to a person’s children. Gene therapy could be targeted to egg and sperm cells (germ cells), however, which would allow the inserted gene to be passed to future generations. This approach is known as germline gene therapy. Because gene therapy involves making changes to the body’s set of basic instructions, it raises many unique ethical concerns. The ethical questions surrounding gene therapy include: 1. How can “good” and “bad” uses of gene therapy be distinguished? 2. Who decides which traits are normal and which constitute a disability or disorder? 3. Will the high costs of gene therapy make it available only to the wealthy? 4. Could the widespread use of gene therapy make society less accepting of people who are different? 5. Should people be allowed to use gene therapy to enhance basic human traits such as height, intelligence, or athletic ability? Attached is some reading material on the issue. Please skim them before the discussion. They will provide sufficient background. This discussion will focus on the ethics and efficacy of gene therapy.
