Classic Readings in Genetics & Ethics

The Classic Readings in Genetics & Ethics seminar series is co-sponsored by CIRGE and the Stanford Center for Biomedical Ethics. The seminar focuses on discussing a different classic article, topic, or case related to genetics and ethics, and its relevance to a more recent article or case. Anyone in the Stanford community is welcome to attend.

Classic Readings in Genetics & Ethics seminar topics are below, and the full seminar syllabus from past seminars can be found here.

For the current 2013-2014 academic year, each seminar will take place from 11am - 12pm in the SCBE conference room on the days listed below.
