Event description

Description

The pace of scientific innovation in and around the life sciences has never been faster, and the implications of many of these innovations pose significant issues for policy-makers, especially for applications relating to human health. How can we balance an accurate understanding of complex science and medicine against relevant ethical, legal and social issues to develop robust and effective policy?

Join leading international experts, Prof Bartha Knoppers – Director, Centre of Genomics and Policy, McGill University and Dr Eric Meslin – President, Council of Canadian Academies, to examine the practical impact of contemporary issues in law, ethics (and beyond) on policy-making for the life sciences and health.

This half-day event begins with lunch and includes plenty of time for discussion, debate and networking.
