Survey on legal, ethical and societal implications of genetics for Goldsmiths University
Thursday, 25th January 2018
Dear Fellow Middle Templar,
I am working with an international team of scientists on legal, ethical and societal implications of genetics.
In the light of unprecedented findings in genetics, and picking up from the work of the Human Genetics Commission, we are looking to find out whether lawyers think we should update the relevant laws.
I would be very grateful if you take a few minutes to share your view (by clicking this link): https://goldpsych.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5BH6xU2uiibgiod
We believe this is very important, and lawyers’ input is key.
This is fully anonymous, and it has been approved by Goldsmiths, University of London Ethics Board. The Questionnaire is developed by The Accessible Genetics Consortium, Goldsmiths University of London.
We thank you in advance for your contribution. Any questions or to collaborate, please feel free to email.
