The ethics of human genomics
Time & Location
About The Event
Alexandra Soulier, Ph.D., ethicist in the Centre for research ethics and bioethics at Uppsala University (Sweden), conducts research at the crossroads of epistemology, political philosophy and ethics, with the aim to explore how technological innovation affects biomedical practices and questions the values of research and care.
In 2003, the completion of the Human Genome Project has led to the identification of approximately 20,000–25,000 genes - leading to significant benefits to medicine and scientific research but also raising ethical issues in research, clinics and the social realm. Alexandra Soulier will discuss what would be a responsible use of genomics today.
Our events are free of charge for members (annual membership fee is 20€) - 5€ for non-members.
