International Conference: Justice in the Genomic and Digital Era


The international Centre for Research in Human Development, The Accessible Genetics Consortiom and the Institute of Law and Ethics invite to take part in the International Conference: "International Conference: Justice in the Genomic and Digital Era".

We are 20 years into the genomic era. The unprecedented progress in genetics internationally has brought numerous legal and ethical implications for individuals and society. Genetic findings are already widely used in medicine and are increasingly applied to other spheres, such as crime prevention, and educational and career selection. To protect individuals and science, updates to relevant laws are essential. To date, little progress has been made in regulating use of genetic information. Genetic science is complex, with research involving private and state sectors globally. Therefore, multidisciplinary and international efforts are required to achieve effective protection. This conference aims to bring together specialist in genetics, law and other disciplines to raise awareness of legal and ethical concerns and to promote progress in updating the legal protection.
