Genome data privacy debates

Future Debates BSAWe have partnered with the British Science Association to run a series of debates about genome data privacy. The debates are happening all over the UK as part of their Future Debate series.

The British Science Association wants to empower many more people – not just scientists – to constructively engage in debates over science’s role in their lives, their local economy, and the UK’s future.

All the debates are free to attend – just register using the links below.
