Know Thy Father
The theme of the event was Know Thy Father. The event presented fun learning activities; and short expert talks on different aspects of genetic science, law and ethics. Participants acted as medical ethicists, by interactively considering a real-life court case involving the NHS and genetic information.
Some very interesting views were discussed during this event and it was clear that people had very different opinions, despite being provided with the same information. The outcomes of this event were written into a paper which is currently being considered for publication.
We would like to thank all the attendees and collaborators for making this a very special event.
