The Human Investigation Committee (HIC), Faculty of Medicine, Memorial University of Newfoundland, in collaboration with the National Council on Ethics in Human Research (NCEHR) has organized a one day workshop with the goals of clarifying the ethical and legal ambiguities associated with human genetic research and clinical practice and flagging guidance issues for research ethics boards. Setting the stage for the breakout sessions will be keynote talks by Professor Trudo Lemmens from the Centre for Innovation, Law, and Policy and the Joint Centre for Bioethics at the U. of Toronto and Dr. John Dean, consultant in Medical Genetics and Honourary Reader at the School of Medicine, Aberdeen Scotland.
The workshop will be limited to 60 participants and will be held at the Fluvarium in St. John’s, NL, on Friday June 10th 2005. Those registered for the workshop will be sent background material and case studies for the breakout sessions.
