Dilemmas of Embryo Research

Explanatory animation video

For the Dutch Ministry of Health I drew and animated a video to illustrate five major dilemmas within the larger discussion surrounding the human embryo.

Scientific research sometimes provokes reevaluating where boundaries lie. Should we change an embryo’s DNA? Should we grow human organs in animals? How do we feel about growing artificial embryos? The video does not answer any of these questions. We should decide for ourselves where we want to go as a society.
