Broader Significance

Links with China

Ruth Chadwick co-ordinated a delegation to four Chinese cities in October 2004, sponsored by the British Council to present research on genetics and health care. The CESAGen representatives gave public lectures, participated in café scientifiques and workshops with Chinese bioethicists and scientists and gave interviews for television and newspapers. Mairi Levitt was invited to be a member of staff on the Chinese Philosophy Summer school in Wuhan (July-August 2005) teaching a course on social and ethical issues in human genetics. Further collaboration is planned with the IAB world congress in Beijing (2006) where the database project team will organise a symposium on Genetic Databases and international health.
