EMBL Science and Society Conference -Terra incognita: navigating ethical boundaries in the life sciences
June 19, 2023 to June 20, 2023
EMBL is committed to sharing research advances and sustaining scientific interaction through onsite and virtual courses and conferences. We are delighted to announce that this conference will be held as a virtual event and invite you to join us online. The virtual conference includes talks from invited speakers, short talk presenters and networking opportunities.
The 23rd Science and Society Conference will examine the breadth of ethical issues present in the life sciences through the lens of molecular biology research. It will explore both the historical context of the intersection between research and ethics, and the fast pace of emerging ethical challenges in the life sciences through two case studies: technology ethics and organoid research. It will present different stakeholder perspectives on navigating ethical boundaries in molecular biology research, as well as featuring a live debate on ethics in research, issues around dual use and beyond.
