Socialising the genome
|When:||Thursday, 10 August 2017 - Thursday, 10 August 2017|
Sydney Brenner Institute for Molecular Bioscience, Seminar Room, The Mount, 9 Jubilee Road, Parktown
The Division of Human Genetics at Wits and the GC NETWORK, (Pty) Ltd. hosts this public lecture by Dr Anna Middleton.
Middleton, Head of Society and Ethics Research Group, Wellcome Genome Campus, Cambridge, UK will explore ethical, legal and social issues raised by genomics in this lecture. She will discuss her research and endeavours to turn genomics from (what is for many) an anti-social concept (‘I won’t understand it’, ‘I didn’t do science at school’) to a more social concept. Her approach to research is grounded in her clinical experience of working directly with families in the NHS as a genetic counsellor.
