ETHICAL, LEGAL, AND SOCIAL IMPLICATIONS OF GENOMICS AND PRECISION MEDICINE
Precision medicine is predicted to have an annual growth rate of 15% in the coming years, with a global market of $60 billion in 2015. China is no exception – it was one of the six countries involved in the Human Genome Project and has become a critical player in large-scale human genome research. However, concerns remain, particularly on the ethical, legal, and social and economic issues related to genetic research and applications of genomics. As the quote “The social problems raised by science must be faced and solved by the humanities” argued, we intend to convene a small group of researchers in this area to generate debates and discussions on social science and humanities research related to precision medicine and genomics research.
