The exciting and rapid advances of science are changing society. Whilst offering possibilities to relieve human suffering and enhance human potential, science sometimes collides with philosophical beliefs.
The Division of Medicine at UCL has organised a colloquium at which a question “Should we clone Neanderthal Man?” will be discussed.
Furthermore, as chair I will make sure that there will be stimulating discussion between the audience and the speakers.
The colloquium will take place on Thursday 8 November at 1600 – 1800 hrs in the 2nd floor seminar room in the Rayne building, 5 University Street.
The speakers are:
Richard Ashcroft, Professor of Bioethics, QMUL
Francois Balloux, Professor of Computational Systems Biology, UCL
Joe Cain, Professor of History and Philosophy of Biology, UCL
Mark Thomas, Professor of Evolutionary Genetics, UCL
