S.Net Pre-Conference Event: Ethical and Social Aspects of Cancer Research
11 October at the BB-Building there will be an open CCBIO Special Seminar on Ethical and Social Aspects of Cancer Research. The event is open for all. We hope to achieve lively discussions between cancer researchers, doctors, students, ethicists, philosophers, social scientists, patients and citizens!
This special seminar aims at bringing together young researchers from the fields of oncology, medical ethics, priority setting in health care, and science and technology studies, in order to discuss topics ranging from the ethics of personalised medicine, the role of cancer biomarkers in clinical practice, cancer and extraordinary treatments that lead to ever longer lives, and issues of privacy in biobanks.
The seminar is also a pre-event to the 8th annual S.Net meeting, which will take place 12-14 October in Bergen, with several open parts, including all keynote lectures.
