How our lives are shaped by genetics (act)

June 28, 2016

This course addresses issues such as the importance of genetics in people's lives, and how information about the genetic identity of patients is used. Current techniques of genetic manipulation already enable us to identify what diseases we may have in the future and to control reproduction, selecting healthy embryos to prevent disease or to treat siblings. This range of possibilities necessitates a personalized medicine and a process of ethical reflection to support decision-making.


Directed by Núria Terribas, director of the Grifols Foundation, and Anna Veiga, biologist and gynaecologist at Salut de la Dona Dexeus, the course will include contributions both from experts and from ordinary citizens, and will offer a bioethical analysis of the issues raised. It is aimed at specialists in reproduction, genetic diseases, and members of the general public with an interest in these issues.
