Electronic Genetic Profiling: Society and Ethics

Activity: Other activity typesTypes of Public engagement and outreach - Festival/Exhibition


Do you think your genes define you? What implications would there be if your
DNA profile was merged with your medical history and personal information and then stored on a computer chip? How could this benefit doctors and scientists? Is our privacy or even our security at risk? Join a panel including the Scottish Youth Parliament and Dr Claudia Pagliari, Convenor of the eHealth Interdisciplinary Research Group, for an engaging, complex debate.
