Dissonance panel discussion

September 25, 2017 6:00pm - 7:00pm
"The Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications of Genetics and Newborn Screening" is the topic of the next Dissonance event on Monday, September 25, at 6:00 p.m. in the Vandenberg Room of the Michigan League. The Dissonance event series explores the confluence of technology, policy, privacy, security, and law from a global and national perspective. It seeks to increase universitywide, multidisciplinary discourse and support university initiatives. The panelists — Joselin Linder, author of "The Family Gene" and Jodyn Platt, assistant professor in the U-M Medical School — will address questions about whether scientific advances—which depend on big data and high performance computing—are outstripping societal and ethical norms with regard to human genetic diversity and more. The moderator will be Kayte Spector-Bagdady. For more information, go to https://www.safecomputing.umich.edu/events/dissonance.
