Aangebied deur die Sentrum vir Mediese Etiek en Regte.
Genetika, genomika en biobankdienste is hoogs betwiste onderwerpe op die vasteland van Afrika. Gevolglik het sommige van ons doktorale studente besluit om hul navorsing te fokus op die etiese, regs- en sosiale kwessies wat inherent is aan hierdie wetenskaplike vakgebiede.
Te midde van die huidige pandemie is die belangrikheid van genomika-navorsing asook die versameling van biologiese monsters vir diagnose en navorsing sterk in die kollig.
Sluit aan by ons debat oor hierdie kernonderwerpe in Afrika.
