Video is now available of a dialogue that included Assistant professor Dr. Jeantine Lunshof and the His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The dialogue took place on 15 September 2018 during the Dalai Lama's visit to the Netherlands to open the exhibition 'Buddha's Life - Path to the Present' in the Nieuwe Kerk in Amsterdam. The opening was accompanied by two panel dialogues about contemporary issues, one on Robotics, Telepresence & Artificial Intelligence and one on Sickness, Ageing & Death.  Dr. Lunshof, a philosopher and ethicist examining issues that arise at the cutting edge of genetic research, was invited to participate in the second panel and a video of the discussion can be found here .
