Microbiome World Congress USA Day 1 2017 @ 09:40

Presentation: Re-assessing ethical issues in Microbiome research and medicine

  • What implications does Microbiome Research have on our social and legal systems?
  • Studies to advance personalized medicine will require broad public participation to provide sufficient material for biobanks and sample banks rather than a small sample of people with a target condition. 
  • How does this change the focus from the individual to community solidarity?
