Genomics, Ethics and Industry Practice

Nadya Ogloff - Wednesday, March 02, 2011

Date: March 23rd 2011
Time: 12pm-4pm

SBN wants you to get the most out of this event – so we decided to take it online. Start now by posting a link to a relevant article and ask the speakers to comment on it during the event!

The purpose is to create and maintain an interactive discussion group so that you can have access to expertise and possibilities for networking. Through continued use of the blog, you can begin to engage students and experts outside of BC to gain a broader perspective on the trajectories of biotech and its impacts on the global community.

"Cloud computing offers solutions for companies wrestling with large-scale data sets, but security issues will likely continue to restrict its use to precompetitive or nonconfidential data."

Here is the Canadian Life and Health Insurance Association (CLHIA) position statement on genetic testing. Very relevant to what one of our panellists, Mr. Paul Warner, will be commenting on: http://www.clhia.ca/domino/html/clhia/CLHIA_LP4W_LND_Webstation.nsf/resources/Guidelines/$file/Genetic_Testing_CLHIA_Industry_Position_2010.pdf

From the Office of the Vice President of UBC: "...one of the goals of the first year of this plan [Draft International Strategic Plan] is to develop a statement of ethics for international projects, and to integrate that into partnership protocols."
