2017 – Artificial Womb Incubates Fetal Lamb

Internship at NNN from September 2017

Humans wanted! In September 2017 a fresh group of interns will join our Amsterdam office to work on exciting new projects: from a job agency for humans and robots to a research into the way technology radically alters our attitude towards reproduction, gender, relationships and love. We have four positions available: skilled designer, enthusiastic editor, ‘can-do’ producer and communication expert. Are you a student in one of these disciplines? Apply now and learn how to love the future (robots need not apply). Read more.

Artificial Womb: the Timeline

NNN is currently researching the concept of the artificial womb and its societal impact and challenges. We started with a historic investigation of the relation between technology and biological reproduction and listed the key moments in the conception of such technology throughout time, as well as related assisted reproductive technologies. Learn more about this project and read the introductory article Ectogenesis, Artificial Womb, Human Egg.

Designer Babies: the Kids of the Future?

What if you had the choice of sparing your child from diseases and disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease or autism? Scientists are working on new DNA techniques that will allow you to choose embryos with edited genes. This gene technology can lower the risk of severe illness as well as increase certain desired factors, like a higher I.Q., athletic ability, eye and hair color and gender.
