Advances in science mean that we can now discover a range of potentially life-changing facts about our DNA. Would you want to know your chances of getting various diseases in later life? How certain should this information be before you’re told? Would this knowledge affect your life choices, or whether you inform your family?
In this event, hosted by Vivienne Parry, three experts will discuss these complex ethical issues. Join them in exploring how such scientific advances can have immense repercussions for healthcare choices, family relationships and how we choose to live our lives. This event is coordinated by the Wellcome Centre for Ethics and Humanities.
