Law, ethics, and society research at Genetics Otago

Rapid advances in genetics create dilemmas for medicine, ethics, and the law. New knowledge and discoveries raise questions about clinical applications, which inevitably have economic implications for funding and availability. These discoveries also generate wider cultural and social questions.

The range of appropriate responses must be based on careful and coherent consideration of ethical, legal, and public policy issues.
