Do Genetic Findings Impact Perceptions of Responsibility?

May 28, 2021
9:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Event Description

Since the start of the Human Genome Project, bioethicists and geneticists have speculated that genetic information can have large impacts on how people understand what they—and other people—are responsible for or responsible to do. This conference will

  • Reflect on the many, complicated ways in which the term responsibility is used
  • Consider two specific contexts in which genetic information can impact perceptions of responsibility
  • Step back and examine the extent to which the initial speculation about large impacts has been borne out by the evidence
