The ability for human beings to design themselves is not new, but developments in the fields of bio-engineering now enable us to change ourselves and our offspring in ways which were once unimaginable.

Dr. O’Callaghan received his B.A. in history at University College Cork, a postgraduate certificate in education at Christchurch College, a B.Th. in theology and his Ph.D. in systematic theology at University of Liverpool.
