Description

Genoeconomics: Can Genetics and Economics Learn From Each Other?
Wed 20 November 2019, 17:00-18:00
We The Curious
£5

What have we learnt about the relationship between social outcomes such as education and income and genetics? And how can genetics help answer fundamental social and economic questions? What should economists be learning from genetic science – and what should geneticists learn from social science? The last decade has seen an explosion in research using genetic information from large studies of volunteers, many of which have been recruited in Bristol (Children of the 90’s and the UK Biobank). These studies, combined with many other from around the world, are transforming our understanding of how our genomes affect outcomes across life.

With Fleur Meddens (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam), Stephanie von Hinke Kessler Scholder (University of Bristol), George Davey Smith (University of Bristol) and chair Neil Davies (University of Bristol).

Bristol Festival of Economics is presented in association with Triodos Bank.
