Project Description:

This partnership aims to promote public participation and dialogue on issues relating to ethical aspects of new genetic science. The science of genetics is increasingly impacting people's lives, yet the public lacks tools and avenues to participate in policy and ethics dialogues on these issues. The desired goal is to promote public participation and dialogue in the arena of new genetic technologies, in particular the social and ethical ramifications of such technologies.
