Plenary reflections: Connecting the dots; discussion, reports and announcements
Tuesday 26 July 2011, 9:00am - 10:05am

Three colleagues shared their reflections on what connects the many and diverse concerns being addressed at the Tarrytown Meetings. Why should someone working on surrogacy tourism, for example, also be concerned about synthetic biology? What common threads can we draw between issues raised by human gene patenting and inheritable human genetic modification? What are the benefits of looking at prenatal genetic testing and DNA databases in a common frame? How do we connect the dots?
