Ethical, Legal and Social Issues in Genetics (ELSI) more
“I am always on the alert for social and technical developments that fall within the scope of ELSI. I discuss these with researchers and medical staff. It is important that they all ask the right questions and work together in order to learn how to take these techniques a step further and to apply them well in practice. I also aim to contribute to prevention: by tracing the likely carriers of hereditary diseases, we can help them get the right therapy or give them information on how to lead a healthier life.”
