|Bio-Medical Seminars for Teachers 2
|Saturday 24th November 2012

|All interested teachers
Technological research and developments in bio-medicine are leading to new and exciting fields with enormous potential for providing a better quality of life. Vast amounts of money are being invested and returns on these investments are sought after. But not every development is ethically neutral. On what principles does one take a view on an issue from an ethical perspective? How are these principles then to be applied to practical situations?
These seminars — based on the experience of professionals in these fields — aim to provide information for teachers who have to lead discussions with senior school students and to provide guidance in rapidly developing fields.
