Beautiful Babies Need No Design | Maria Sole Franceschi | TEDxYouth@ISF

The new gene-editing technology known as “CRISPR Cas-9” has revolutionized molecular biology and genetics with its scientific capabilities and has the potential to revolutionize the world entirely. Maria Sole explains the true implications of the rumored “designer babies,” and how unethical use of this new technology could impact society. Maria Sole is a tenth-grade student attending the International School of Florence. She has lived abroad in Houston and in Paris and these international experiences have granted her the possibility of living in a multicultural community and have shaped her worldview. Maria Sole also has a deep passion for reading and traveling. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
