Genomics, Society and Health - Genomics, decision-making and risk

Description

A group of the UK's leading experts in genetics, medicine and bioethics discuss some of the ethical and social issues in modern genomic research and testing.

Dr Ralph Levinson from the Institute of Education, chairs a discussion on genomic research with Professors Steve Jones, Jane Worthington, Dian Donnai and John Harris.

Future developments in genetic knowledge may benefit human health but what impact will this knowledge have on society, and who should have access to this information?

This video has been produced with SchoolsWorld as part of the Nowgen Schools Genomics Programme. Educational resources are currently being developed to support teaching and learning using this video. They will be available here in late September 2010.

Part of the series: Genetics and Medicine
