Discussing whole genome sequencing in medical practice
Starts: 7 November 2012
Wednesday 7th November 2012, 7pm - 9.30pm, The Grape and Olive, Wendal Road, Cardiff (map here)
Social scientists will discuss social, ethical, legal and practical aspects of the application of whole genome sequencing in medical practice, with primary care workers. Should other family members be informed about results? If so, who by? Will people's worries about their (family's) future health have an impact on primary care delivery?
This event has been organised by the ESRC Centre for the Economic and Social Aspects of Genomics (CESAGen), within the School of Social Sciences at Cardiff University, as part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science. The Festival, which offers a fascinating insight into some of the country's leading social science research, takes place throughout the UK as a celebration of the social sciences.
